The Course

Deadfall50 is a trail running event that takes place in the beautiful Qu'Appelle Valley at Echo Valley Provincial Park in Saskatchewan.

The course twists through trails up and down the coulees of the Qu'Appelle Valley and features narrow deer trails  and wide open grassy pastures.  Be prepared to jump over deadfall, duck under limbs, wade through mud and scoot across grass.  In other words, just another day in the dirt.

Deadfall50 offers runners the following events: 5km Fun Run, 12.5km, 25km and 50km. The 50km race can be run either as solo or as a relay team (you may have two, three or four members on your relay team). 

The courses consists of two basic loops: one 5km and the other is 12.5km.  Both these loops start from the park's Visitor Centre, and these form the basis for the four events.  Racers venture out onto some of the most gorgeous trails the park has to offer. 

 The Deadfall 50 course is designed to challenge you while allowing you to room to experience the joy of trail running.  The course varies from tough hills to fast flats; from prairie grassland to treed trails; from  hardpack single track trails to wide open grassy knolls. The varied terrain offers something for every level of runner. Choose your distance and your pace to make it your own. There is a challenging 1,000 m  elevation change in the 50 k event.  A one mile long gradual uphill early in the course gets your heart pumping and  an exhilarating descent into the valley gets you ready for  your final sprint to the finish.
