Registration opens December 26 with Boxing Day Pricing! We'll see you on June 23rd.
Hosted by the Kimberley Trails Society, the Kootenay Orienteering Club, and the Kootenay Freewheelers' Cycling Club, the spectacular annual Round The Mountain Festival showcases Kimberley's beautiful and diverse trail network and features the Round The Mountain Route. Participants can choose from a variety of four hiking, running, and mountain biking challenges around North Star Mountain, plus kids races, live music, and food and drinks will provide fun and entertainment for everyone. All events start and finish at the Kimberley Nordic Centre.
One runner on a challenging but shorter trail run. For those who want to get back to the festival more quickly!
This is a fun, challenging trail run with a couple of tough climbs and lots of beautiful singletrack. After descending into the Kimberley Nature Park, you’ll climb back out to join with the main Round the Mountain route. So you get the same great finish down the Magic Line.
One energetic child. Running, mountain biking, and other fun activities. For kids 12 and under.
With ages ranging from 3 to 12, we'll split the kids into 2 groups: RTM Kiddie Extreme (6 & under) and RTM Adventure Kids (12 & under). Climbing Wall, orienteering maze, and other fun activities to keep the kids busy the rest of the time.
One runner, one mountain. You run all the way around.
This will not be a fast course, and you're unlikely to be setting a PB on the day. Be prepared for some tough climbs, and plenty of technical, rocky sections. Average times will be over 2 hours with an expected winning time near 1:20
One bike, one rider, one mountain, lots of single track. 2 new 3km purpose built mountain bike single tracks were completed in 2014. Don't miss your chance to ride these amazing new trails. The winning time should be somewhere around 1:20, and Intermediate riders should allow at least 2hrs to complete the 20 km loop. You don't need to be an expert Mountain Biker, but there are some very technical sections, and beginners should be prepared to walk some sections.
A recap of Kimberley's Round the Mountain Festival in June 2018. All funds raised go toward improvement of Kimberley's non-profit hiking and biking trail system
