Fat Dog 120 Trail Race

August 9-11, 2019 (updated Oct 14)

Most scenic ultra race in Canada. Join us for a challenging point to point race that straddles 3 stunning provincial parks in British Columbia, Canada in the Cascade Mountains. Just short of Everest for elevation gain; Fat Dog 120 mile is 8682 metres, Everest is 8848 metres.


What's New

  • With BC Parks, we have worked out alternative routes if there are wildfires so the race can go on! The race date is back to August as usual. Alternative routes have mountains and views.
  • The 2018 race was cancelled due to a wildfire road closure in the Skagit. Racers who were on the final racer list (not withdrawn) get a full deferral to 2019.
  • Trail Runner Magazine suggests Fat Dog 120 if you didn't make Hardrock or Western States!
