Alberta’s first and Canada’s only 200-mile Ultra
The stuff legends are made of… The culmination of 21 years of living, playing, and working in the Rocky Mountains.
We are deep into the planning process for The Divide 200, which will be based primarily in Southern Alberta. The route includes the Castle/Crowsnest/Flathead region of the southern Rockies. The race will celebrate our Rocky Mountain heritage, and highlight portions of the stunning Great Divide Trail. Our vision for The Divide 200 is to keep you up high and enjoying the varied landscape of the Continental Divide. Explore the Southern Canadian Rockies.
The course is a combination of single track, double track, a small amount of road, cross country, and even a bit of bushwhacking and scrambling. The race is about alpine travel, ridge walks, and getting you into remote back country.
This event is for people with a great deal of both race experience and alpine experience. There will be some sections of route finding even though it is a prescribed course; the terrain can just be really gnarly out there.
Checkpoints will be every 20 to 40km apart, depending on the section of the race. Flagging will be less frequent than at our other events, and primarily at junctions with more in critical areas. Competitors are required to carry a Garmin inReach for both route-find and safety.
The race is open to solo competitors, and it will be capped at 100 entrants. Registration will be both by vetting past race results and then a lottery. We are offering a large prize purse for the top three female and male competitors with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers receiving $5,000, $2,500, and $1,750 respectively.‚Ä†
