The Four Elements Adventure Race (or FearBC) is set to challenge teams in the hills and mountains surrounding Castlegar on Saturday, September 30th. Teams of three will test their skills, physical abilities and mental fortitude while supporting each other as they navigate between checkpoints via trekking and mountain biking stages. To add to the excitement, teams will also be given instructions to complete special tasks relating to each of the four elements while progressing through the race course.

This six to nine hour race (depending on a group’s rate of travel) will see teams navigate via map and compass through some of the West Kootenays most breathtaking terrain. “We wanted to create a race that was team-based and unique to the area that people can get excited about” stated John Ford, one of four local Race Coordinators. Ford has been involved in coordinating various adventure races in Canada over the past ten years and is stoked to be bringing one to his new home in Castlegar.

Early bird rates are now available until July 31st. Register now!
