Welcome to the Iron Legs 50 miler and relay.  It is a 50 mile trail run that loops around Moose Mountain, in Kananaskis Country and offers fantastic single track and stunning views of the Canadian Rockies.  The course is mostly on single track trails with some fire roads and lots of elevation change.  There is approximatly 20,000 feet of elevation change in the race with about 15,000 of it coming within the first 50k, which makes this one of the toughest ultras in the series.


It can be run either solo or as a relay team of 2 or 3 runners. 


There is a cap of 150 runners so register early to ensure your spot in the race.


Solo - $80

2 Person Relay - $95

3 Person Relay - $135

Up to July 1st a 50% refund will will be given and no transfers are allowed.  There are no refunds if the race has to be cancelled for unforeseen circumstances such as but not limited to weather, fire or unsafe conditions.


Registration will close Aug 15th @ 11:59pm.


The registration fee's go up by $10 on June 15th, 2012

Like all races, they do not happen without the help of volunteers.  If you are interested in helping out at this years race please contact the Jamie through the contact us link.  We need help with aid stations, course marking, course marshals, course sweeps, package pickup, racer check-in, and other tasks.

Organizations that we Support

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers make this race such a success and like every year we need people to step up and help out.  If you have free time on one of the days we need help please help out and come on out and see some amazing people complete a monumental challenge.  Please follow the link below to see what jobs are available and when.




2014 Race date is Aug 16th.

Powderface Trail never opened back up this year after the floods and we hope that it will be by next August so the course and aid station locations can stay the same.  If for some reason the road does not reopen than we will have to look at other options such as course changes or aid statin locations moving.  We can promise you that no matter what the race will be amazing, the other thing we can say is that the race direction will be changing next year.  It is time to run the loop in a counter clockwise direction, this will help with race logistics if Powderface Trail doesn't reopen.
