Although outdoor enthusiasts in Fernie are always looking forward to the beginning of winter and the ski season, fall offers plenty of opportunities to get outdoors, and one of the most celebrated is the annual Fernie Half Marathon. This year, the 10th annual run has a picturesque course laid out along the Elk River with a stunning mountain backdrop to inspire the runners.
This year there are some exciting additions to the race weekend. The introduction of chip timing technology brings the Fernie Half Marathon up to speed with other premier races, and allows the race to ensure that with the increasing number of competitors, everyone will still get an accurate time. In addition, there will be a Runner’s Expo held the day before the race featuring a gourmet luncheon, fitness and wellness experts, and Race Pre-Registration and Package Pick-Up.
Today, Tuesday, September 21 is the last day to register! For more information on registration or the race itself, please visit their website. See you there!
