CALGARY ULTRA TRAIL RUN – SOLO & RELAY

 

 

 

Sunday, June 4, 2023

The 2nd annual Calgary Ultra Trail Run offers the unique opportunity to experience an ultra race inside Calgary with 12k Solo, 25k Solo/Team and 50k Solo/Team categories.  Each loop includes single-track, some shale and a touch of tarmac plus several ridge-ascents.  Whether you’re a grizzled ultra-veteran or first time trail racer, this race adventure delivers something for everyone – even a cash prize for our Ultra 50K winners!

Sponsoring

The Calgary Ulta Run is sponsoring the Friends of Fish Creek Sustainability Society which believes that a sustainable Fish Creek Provincial Park improves the quality of life for present and future generations.  The society engages the community through activities and awareness to conserve a unique naturalized urban park.  As you run our trails, think of giving back to this worthy organization when you register.  Platinum Racing will be matching 50% of your donations!
