I love these trails and we share a little history. If you live in Calgary and you like to mountain bike, these are the trails you ride. This area of Kananaskis Country is epic singletrack at its' finest! These days, I seldom get to visit this corner of Kananaskis Country as it's just that little bit too far from Banff. This little race is a great reason to re-connect with these old familiar trails. I've run it 3 times and I love it!
The Powderface 42 course is almost all singletrack, it's tough, the trails are gorgeous and the scenery is just spectacular! In a nutshell, it's my kind of run.
This year, I decided to make a weekend of it to visit my old stomping grounds. The idea was to go find a camping spot in the area and run on Friday, race on Saturday and run on Sunday! Doesn't that sound like a great weekend?? I was stoked. It was also an opportunity to have a little Leslie time and just hang out in the woods - relaxing, reading, observing, breathing.
