Sunday, March 16 2014 - Announcing the Canadian Mountain Running Qualifying Series
The Canadian Mountain Running Association (CMRA) is excited to announce the introduction of a series of national qualifying events leading towards the Canadian Mountain Running Championships in Golden, BC. The Canadian Mountain Running Qualifying Series is a set of four of the biggest mountain running races in the country; one designated for each region of Canada. Any runner who places top 3 in their age category at any one of the four races will be automatically qualified to start at the national championships on June 29, an incredible finale to the series with a climb up the Kicking Horse Mountain resort.

In Eastern Canada, the Xtrail Asics Mt. Sutton race will host the first race in the east on May 24, while in the Prairies, 5 Peaks Canada Olympic Park will host the first western race on the very same weekend. A week after on May 31, it will be Ontario’s turn, as 5 Peaks Terra Cotta will be the site of the third race in the qualifying series. It will be rounded out a week later in BC at the 5 Peaks Alice Lake on June 7.

Former national team member and current CMRA president Adrian Lambert is very excited about the new qualifying races. “The mountain and trail running community in Canada is so strong thanks to the races put on by our amazing partners, 5 Peaks and Xtrail Asics, and there are many runners who race at the local level that are truly deserving of the opportunity to race for the Canadian championship. I expect this will make Nationals an exciting and truly countrywide race and will ultimately make Canada a stronger mountain running country on the world stage.”

The National Championships will feature not only the senior class, but a junior and master’s category as well, so all interested runners, regardless of age, are encouraged to race one of the qualifying events. The top runners from the national championships in the junior and senior category will also be selected to represent Canada at the World Mountain Running Championships later in the summer in Italy.

For more information on the Qualifying Series and the qualifying criteria, visit the CMRA website. Only members of the Canadian Mountain Running Association are eligible to be selected for the national team, and must be members before racing at the national championships.
