The Canadian Mountain Running Championships will be held this Saturday in beautiful Canmore, Alberta. The top finishers will qualify to represent Canada at the inaugural IAAF World Mountain Running Championship, NACAC Mountain Running Championships and Commonwealth Games Mountain Running Championships.
The mens field looks to be stacked with many veteran trail, xc and mountain runners, as well as a few newcomers to the mountain running scene.
Taking a quick look at the confirmed entry list, it's a good bet that the eventual mens winner will probably be one of the following...
As for the womens field, it looks to be a little more wide open. If anyone has any thoughts on either race, please feel free to comment.
Good luck to all!
