The event is open to runners, walkers, cyclists and ebikes. Race for the king or queen of the mountain title or take it on as a personal challenge. Minimum $20 donation and all proceeds go to the Cancer Society – so get yourself and some mates behind it, as is a fantastic event for a great cause to join in either competitively or for fun!
Event details to come.
The idea for Remarks Road Run came from one of The Remarkables' rental department staff members in 2012, who had a goal for the season to run the 13km length of the ski area access road. The date was set for Daffodil Day and it was decided to open the run to the public and raise money for the Cancer Society.
The Remarks Road Run has been a successful event on the Remarks event calendar every year since always occurring on Daffodil Day it has been a great way to help The Cancer Society to raise funds and to connect with our community. In 2016, it was suggested to include bikers in the event as well as runners, which has added to the event’s success in the last two seasons.
