21st Emperor's Challenge ascends Babcock Mountain tomorrow

Those looking to up their time from pervious years as well as runners taking on the challenge for the first time wil get their shot tomorrow when the 21st Emperor's Challenge takes place at Babcock Mountain in Tumbler Ridge.

Organizers are urging participants to leave earlier for the race, as the Core Lodge Road which leads to the race is in bad shape and full of pot holes, and more time is needed to navigate it.

Registration is closed for both adults and kids, and hundreds of people will take to the mountain in the 20km, 4km and 2km distances. 

Phil Phelan was the top 20km runner from Fort St. John last year, finishing in 11th place. Phelan is coming off a strong time at the 2019 Canadian Death Race in Grande Cache last weekend.
