SharkFest - Introduction
In 1998 RMR initiated an annual event called “Sharkfest” at the Mt. Shark Racing Trails in Kananaskis Country. Mt. Shark Trails have a unique history in the Nordic scene, having originally been developed as a backup site to the Canmore Nordic Centre in the early eighties. The site has hosted many premier events including the North American Championships in 1985, and the Canadian Nationals in 1986. Many well-known athletes competed there including Pierre Harvey and Vegard Ulvang. The relatively remote location has posed some very interesting challenges and adventures but RMR has managed to host the last Alberta races of the season at Mt. Shark almost every year since 1998.
