Race Information

Yep, the 5 Peaks Big Kahuna. This is an Alberta favourite, a classic, the one that started it all and a ‘must-do’ for any trail runner. The Powderface 42 serves up 44.4km (bonus!) and 1671 metres of elevation gain on some wickedly beautiful K-Country singletrack. 5 Peaks also offers up a 21.6 km half marathon distance as well with half the elevation, you know... cause trail marathons aren't exactly a walk in the park! There are only 150 spots total so make sure you register early before it sells out! Bear spray is highly recommended in this bear country!
