Fernie Tears & Gears started in 2010, as a fun mountain duathlon in the amazing town of Fernie, BC. Since then it has grown to be one of the most popular (and sometimes competitive!) local races of the year.
Now, moving into its 7th year, taking place on Sunday September 3, 2017, Fernie Tears & Gears offers a Trail Running/Mountain Biking Duathlon, as a Soloist or 2-person Team. As well as having the option to Run or Bike only. With the more recent addition of a Youth Duathlon, catering to 8+.
Tears & Gears has a little brother too, the Winter Wheezer, a fun Winter Trail Run, Nordic and Fat Bike, this year taking place on Sunday February 12, 2017, as part of the Fernie Nordic Society 2017 Winterfest. Taking part as a Soloist or Team, racers can choose from Nordic Skiing or Fat Biking, to accompany their Winter Trail Run.
Registration for the 2017 Winter Wheezer will open in December. With registration for Tears & Gears, opening spring 2017.
