This year we are excited to announce Sin Fest! Every year hundreds of people come to the Crowsnest Pass to run in the Sinister 7 Ultra Marathon. Sin Fest is a celebration of the community that hosts this world-class event and the athletes who push themselves to the max.

If you are running, it’s nice to enjoy some of the local entertainment while you are here. So we are working with a number of attractions and local organizations to provide you a weekend that isn’t just about running! There will be an outdoor community market, guided hiking trips, mountain biking, an eating contest, access to the outdoor pool, historical presentations at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, and a bumping night scene at Pass Powderkeg, Ground Zero for Sin Fest!
