Welcome to the Iron Legs 100k, this is a great race that will challenge all that attempt it. So if you are looking for a tough race with lots of elevation, amazing views of the Canadian Rockies as you cross ridges, valleys and amazing single track then come to the start line in August.
Course : The course starts and Finishes at Station Flats. Once there is a final course approved for permiting it will be posted.
Aid Stations : There will be fully stocked aid stations, final locations will be posted once permitting approved. The stocked aid stations will have the usual fare of water, sport drink, coke, chips, gummies, gels, granola bars, etc....
Support Crews : Solo runners are welcome to have a support crew meet them at aid-stations.
Pacers : No pacers are allowed on the course, however you can bring along your dog if you would like. But remember you are responsible for them at all times, this is in regards to disrupting other runners and also picking up after them.
Mandatory Gear : While the list of mandatory gear is small, I do suggest that you carry more gear with you. Being that this race is a mountain race that takes you through remote and exposed areas, be prepared for all kinds of conditions.
- Head lamp required after aid-station 4 (Powderface) at 3pm
- Race bib
- Hydration pack or water bottles - min. 1.5L
Suggested Gear : Take a look at the list and consider taking some of these items with you during the race. The weather can change quick in the mountains and you don't want to to get caught without the proper gear.
- Wind/Water resistant jacket
- Tights or pants
- Bear spray
- Sun Screen
Misc. : There is limited rides back from the aid stations, so if you decide to drop out, you will be required to wait until the next available ride and may be put to work helping out. So if you are thinking of pulling out, remember it might be easier to just keep on running.
