Be There Races offers the very unique experience of the Kananaskis 100 Mile Relay Race. K-100 (as it’s fondly known) is a 10-person running relay race that starts in Longview, Alberta, the heart of the foothills, and finishes 160 km later in Kananaskis Village. Running over the Highwood Pass, the highest paved road in the country, runners and spectators will experience some of the most incredible scenery Alberta has to offer. For 35 years, this event has attracted runners from all over the country and the world. It is one of the best team-building opportunities around. This race welcomes runners of all abilities from recreational to the most competitive so it’s suitable for everybody. The fun starts in Longview on Friday evening with a traditional Alberta BBQ meal for all runners. Saturday morning coffee and breakfast treats start the day of running. It is common to spot black bears, grizzly bears, Rocky Mountain Sheep, deer, and even the elusive Moose over the course of the day. Many of their relay stations are at day-use areas along highway 40, including at the top of the Highwood Pass. Along with stunning Rocky Mountain scenery, participants and spectators just might find themselves observing wildlife in their natural habitat. The final two legs are on some of the amazing hiking trails near Kananaskis. Finishing in Kananaskis Village at the stunning Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, runners, spectators, and volunteers will enjoy post-race festivities including a delicious post-race meal and beer from local Calgary brewery, Tool Shed. Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge (PKML) offers a preferred room rate to all K-100 participants, volunteers, and spectators creating a weekend travel experience not to be missed.
