Series details

With trail running races across Canada, 5 Peaks delivers some of the best trail this country has to offer. Our events are hosted at some of the most spectacular natural spaces in the country. Each race takes place on pre-marked natural surface trails with participants running over rocks, roots, tree stumps and logs, through mud puddles, snow and so much more.

Founded in 1998, the 5 race series originated in the Vancouver area, and attracted 600 participants over one summer. Today, under new management, the series spread across Canada and offers participants an option of 4 course lengths, has developed an intricate network of supporting sponsors, and has realized a participation of over 12,000 racers per year.

Following true to 5 Peaks tag line, people are increasingly motivated to GET OFF THE ROAD and onto the trails. The series runs from April to October each year. Each event consists of a free Children’s Challenge (50m – 1km), a Kidspeaks Timed Kids Challenge (about 3k), a Sport (5-8 km) entry-level course, and an Enduro (10-15 km) intermediate to advanced course. Certain races will also have a half marathon distance.

Taking approximately 400 – 800 participants per race over some of the country’s most spectacular terrain, all competitors gain a new appreciation for the ease and beauty of enjoying their Region’s backcountry. The series is open to novice through expert athletes with winners in different age categories receiving points & prizing.

Register for all 5 events at once, please choose your distance for each race. Choose your distances during registration. Upgrading to the half marathon distance for Devon will be available in the new year for a $25 upgrade fee per half marathon.

We will do everything in our power to safely host the events at the scheduled dates and venues. However, if local or regional governments, permitting agencies and / or public health officials do not permit us to gather in-person at the scheduled dates and locations, individual event registration will be transferred to the corresponding virtual event in the 5 Peaks Virtual Race Series. No refunds will be issued. There will be no deferrals to 2022.
