The first three years of the Wild Rose Rough Runner have been a #wrrrlwind. Going into our fourth year, we are gearing up to establish the rough runner as a tradition in South Western Alberta.
Our mission is not just to get you outside and test your limits. Our mission is to inspire you to take in breaths of mountain air and provide you access to the world class mountains in SW Alberta. We are driven to expose you to the Southern Alberta Experience.
Leave you breathless: by the vertical, the views, the obstacles, and the sense of hospitality.
Why three events? We want to see what you are made of, and find our Rough Runner of the year. A rough runner is:
Someone who can sprint like a bear up a couloir, endure trails no matter the condition, and tackle obstacles on the side of a mountain. They can do so while respecting the wild, the spirit of their fellow rough runners, and their own inner strength.
The coveted Awards by McRae Silver will belong to the top Male and Female who can complete all three challenges the quickest. But don’t be afraid. We believe in challenge by choice.
Just want to run the Obstacle Course race on Saturday? Sounds good! Want to tackle the trail run but avoid the vertical 100m? That’s good with us too! You can choose whether you want to participate in 1, 2 or 3 events at this year’s rough runner. Whichever you chose, we guarantee a weekend you won’t forget, in Alberta’s best kept secret.
The World could use a little more South Western Alberta, and what better way to experience it than running wild through the mountains, and branding your finish medal with new friends?


Teams run in the same heat.
