Canmore 2 Days, Empowering Women
Join us for 2 days on a women's only, trail run, hike & bike adventure in Canmore AB.
Canmore is a town in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary. It’s known for craggy summits like the Three Sisters and Ha Ling Peak. In nearby Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, the Grassi Lakes Trail weaves past a waterfall to 2 turquoise blue lakes. The park also features cross-country ski and mountain-bike trails. East, Grotto Canyon’s steep limestone walls flank a narrow creek bed leading to a cave.
We have hand picked our activities and created a safe place where women can explore and challenge themselves while conquering new goals. We will be exploring beautiful places while learning and talking about about where we are, how to empower each other and be our best selves!
This Adventure includes one trail run, two summit hikes and a group bike ride! We will be running the Goat Creek Trail from Banff to Canmore (19km), hiking to the summit of Ha Ling (8km) riding our bikes along the Banff Legacy Trail and getting up early for a sunrise hike to Sulphur Mountain (5.5km)!
Our trip has been designed to challenge you offering you the opportunity to grow and explore. We will be physically, emotionally and mentally challenged. We are tackling hiking and biking with back to back activities. We are going to be talking about courage, fear and how we can love who we are! Empowering each other to tackle these activities and to HAVE FUN!
The Banff Legacy Trail is now more commonly referred to as the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail since the extension from Canmore was established. Built to commemorate Parks Canada’s 125th anniversary, the first two legs of the trail were completed in the fall of 2010. It is a scenic three metre wide, 26 kilometre long, commuter trail connecting the small mountain town communities of Canmore and Banff. The route runs parallel to the highway and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. This bike path is welcome for all bike abilities and types of bikes.
