Fernie Tears and Gears is a mountain duathlon that offers two events, the summer which takes place in early September every year and includes mountain trail running and biking, and the winter which takes place this February 28, 2016!
The 4th Annual Winter Wheezer will be held at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre and competitors can challenge the course solo, or on a team. The legs are a snowshoe followed by a Nordic ski (either skate or classic), and new this year is the addition of snow biking! Individuals or teams will have the choice of either snowshoeing and Nordic skiing, or snowshoeing and snow biking!
This event is open to all abilities, and is a community-focused event that provides a fun and supportive atmosphere for those volunteering, competing or cheering! To register for this year’s event, head to zone4.ca. If you are keen to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
