The Kicking Horse Pass is the highest point on the Trans Canada Highway. At 1640 meters it is the point where the TCH passes through the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
The Kicking Horse Challenge is an event to give runners and triathletes a focus for training and a goal to achieve. The Challenge is to climb the equivalent of the Kicking Horse Pass on foot during the month of October.
Everyone who enters the Kicking Horse Challenge will receive a commemorative plaque. Everyone who reaches their goal of summiting the pass will receive a medallion to mount on the plaque to reward your accomplishment. Anyone who is able to summit twice in the month will be rewarded with a special medallion.
You can track your progress on the Kicking Horse Challenge progress page listing participants and their total progress, updated daily. This page will be accessible to the public so that your friends and family can follow your run. And you will be invited to an athlete Facebook group so you can meet your co-challengers.
