August 8th, rise to the challenge that awaits you in Tumbler Ridge! This mountain Half Marathon is a unique race on the circuit, and will be your most memorable. Starting near treeline, you climb over 2000 feet to the summit of Babcock Mountain. There you claim your reward in the spectacular open terrain at the top of the mountain as you begin the descent home. The skyline to the west is a tableau of rugged limestone and snow of the Northern Rockies in summer.

You want a half marathon you can really talk about? Rise to the Challenge!

The Emperor's Challenge is designed for all comers.
