Arrow Lakes News

The Kootenay Sufferfest Society is ready and willing to help out with any potential New Year’s resolutions you might have by announcing some exciting new physical activity events for the 2015 season.

The non-profit society has been active in the Kootenays by hosting the annual Sufferfest event which includes a number of bike and running competitive and non-competitive race opportunities for athletes of all ages. The society’s umbrella has been expanding as of late and has recently announced the addition of a road bike race during the upcoming May long weekend and a Sky Running Series, which includes marathon courses up Milford Mountain and Idaho Peak Mountain.

The road bike course will be a three-day challenge that covers the dynamic spectrum of the sport while celebrating the unique road conditions available in the Nakusp area. Racers will be challenged with a hill climb, a road race and a criterium respectfully over the three-day event.

The Kootenay Sufferfest has also partnered with the already established Burton Amazing Race and will host the popular triathlon and relay event on June 20.

Janice Neufeld, the Race Director of the Kootenay Sufferfest Society, is a keen physical activity enthusiast and continues to organize events that “support the communities and help promote active healthy living for all ages with something for everyone.”
