Wildlife Encounters

This event takes place in Banff National Park, the heart of the Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. Along with the wild nature and grand beauty of this natural mountain environment, comes the possibility that the event may be rerouted, delayed, or cancelled to protect sensitive wildlife along the route (or for other reasons such as mudslide, fire, road maintenance operations or other public safety hazards) if acceptable alternatives do not exist.

“Special Notice” – There is a possibility of wildlife encounters along the Lake Louise to Banff Loppet course – If wildlife (bear, elk, cougar, or wolf) is observed, STOP and retreat to a safe distance (100m). Observation must be reported to race organizers or Parks Canada staff. In the case of a wildlife situation, the race start may be delayed, or stopped by course marshals, Park Wardens, or RCMP and/or an alternate route will be enacted.
