Canada's only 200-miler

The stuff legends are made of... The culmination of 21 years of living, playing, and working in the Rocky Mountains.

The inaugural Divide 200 was a huge success and we look forward to returning in 2024. The route includes the Castle/Crowsnest/Flathead region of the southern Rockies. The race will celebrate our Rocky Mountain heritage, and highlight portions of the stunning Great Divide Trail. Our vision for The Divide 200 is to keep you up high and enjoying the varied landscape of the Continental Divide. The Race is hosted by the Western Ultra Racing Association with technical and logistics support from Sinister Sports.

The race is open to solo competitors, and it will be capped at 100 entrants. We are offering a large prize purse for the top three female and male competitors with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers receiving $5,000, $2,500, and $1,750 respectively.†
