5 Peaks Adventures
Amy started her competitive trail running career with 5 Peaks races at the Canmore Nordic Centre and the Delta in Kananaskis Country. She has competed internationally twice for the Canadian Mountain Running Team, and recently transitioned to longer distances, winning two 50k races and placing second in the team event at the 2010 TransRockies Run.
"I was so fortunate to grow up in a place where I could hit the trails right out my back door. But not everyone has had the opportunity to experience trail running. I want to share it with as many people as possible because of the freedom and challenge it offers."
A former international-level triathlete, Adam is emerging as one of Canada's most accomplished trail ultra marathoners, with podium finishes at major international races, and being named 2012 Canadian Male Ultra Trail Runner of the Year. His first trail race was a 5 Peaks event at Mt. Seymour in 2006. He fell in love with the sport and has since dedicated his time and energy to exploring new trails around the world.
"While I love the solitude of day to day running, racing is a celebration of that hard work. It not only gives me a chance to experience new trails, it has also provided me a wonderful community of friends. The races that 5 Peaks Adventures put on are in some of the most stunning settings and attract a wonderful group of people. They are a wonderful celebration and are one of the reasons that I love the sport as much as I do."
We wish to congratulate Amy and Adam on this amazing new adventure, and we look forward to seeing them and all of you out on the trails!
