The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is excited to be hosting the 5th annual ‘Summit Run-it’ on Saturday June 15th.

You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful location than Stone Mountain Provincial Park if running in the wild is your thing, so come one – come all.

Participants will meet at the Summit Tower Road access point and walk or run approximately 12km return (to the tower and back) all on a gravel road surface.

This route will take runners through the high alpine meadow above the Alaska Highway at Summit Lake, where the possibility to spot Mountain Caribou or Stone’s Sheep increases with each stride.

Be sure to bring your dog, but leave nothing to chance and prepare for any weather condition given the high mountain environment in which the run will take place(Snow in June is apart of the norm in Stone Mountain Provincial Park).

If you are travelling from Fort Nelson, give yourself 1.5hrs to drive to the trailhead, and plan on arriving 10-15 minutes before the 10am start time to get registered.
