Our skin salve was originally created to repair and restore dry, irritated skin. Then someone used the slick salve on a mountain bike ride in place of his usual anti-chafe stuff. It worked wonders. Since 2015, we’ve been keeping your skin healthy and free from chafing and blisters. Athletes, outdoor enthusiasts and skincare fanatics have utilized the preventative and healing effects of SNB in running, cycling, triathlon, hiking and everyday life.

Three Edmonton ladies have embarked on the adventurous task of launching a chocolate company, Seven Summits Snacks during COVID times. Founded in 2019 in memory to RH Fisher’s last adventure, Seven Summits Snacks has a passion for health and balance, yet live to embrace a challenge. They provide purposeful nutrition and satisfying chocolate products to get you through your next adventure and aim to build up, inspire and fuel our community of fellow chocolate loving adventurers. They are a team of athletes, chocolate experts, and brand builders.
Their core product, the Endurance Bar, is revolutionary in its purpose and position; there is not a fuelling product on the market like it. It was created after co-founder and triathlete Leanna Carriere was looking for tasty, better-for-you chocolate that spoke to her as an athlete. She pitched this to her sister, Kristyn, the chocolate scientist and she created a solution. As a marathon runner herself, Kristyn crafted a chocolate-based product to keep one fuelled during long endurance efforts. The sisters recruited their long-time friend Christine to guide the business development of the company.
Seven Summits Snacks now wishes to build their brand awareness and recruit endurance enthusiasts in Western Canada (and beyon!) to be a part of their grand adventure, making Seven Summits Snacks one of the leading fuel choices for hikers, cyclists, and runners alike.
Fast Trax started as a seasonal specialty nordic ski store in 1992. Running was added in 2006 & the shop became what it still is today – the best place to buy run & ski equipment. While the gear we sell is good, as is the selection, our differentiation is the knowledge we offer to fit folks with the right gear – all staff run & ski & race alot, be it on road or trail, from short to ultra distances. We have the expertise to cater to the elite racer or the folks starting out.
Simon & are in the store full time. For a bit more about staff, go here.
We’re always keen to help out the run & ski communities, wither it’s used shoe donations or discounted ski equipment to those who need or deserve.
The Klondike Ultra is a new running event. We expect growth to double within the second year and continue growing exponentially there after.
(statistics gathered from similar Ultra running events)
Each year we expect hundreds of racers and their families as well as spectaculars to come to Fort Assiniboine and area in June for the Klondike Ultra.
68% between the ages of 30 and 49.
95% of the participants will most likely be non locals.
Trail runners are generally university or college educated (more than 80%), and are in a middle to upper class income bracket. Most runners tend to spend the weekend at the event. spending more than $100 per day on food and souvenirs. The vast majority of runners would not consider the area to spend the weekend if it were not for the Klondike Ultra. Advertising initiatives will be focused on existing runners in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and the Northern portions of USA.
As a sponsor you’ll get the opportunity to directly interact with the Klondike Ultra runners and be part of our extensive marketing campaign.
