Sunday, May 28, 2023 - 7:00 AM

This is your last chance to run the legendary 50KM Ultra. After 10 years we are retiring this distance and ushering in a new era so if the 50K Ultra has been on your bucket list, get after it before it's gone.

What's an extra 7.805KM ... really?

No other race in Canada allows you to graduate from the marathon to a longer distance. Enter the 50KM Ultra, where participants have a shot at winning Alberta beer, beef and (cowboy) boots if you can cinch the top spots. This is an IAU Bronze label event and ACU national championship since 2014 meaning you can also use this event to punch your ticket for world 50KM championships.

Start your race with the marathon but when the marathoners head home you keep going to run what is arguably one of the most scenic parts of the route, on the pathways of Bowness surrounded by nature. All 50KM finishers will receive our fan-favourite belt buckle medal!
