The Experience

Friday, August 19: Meet your fellow trekkers, get your custom Mount Terry Fox T-shirt, and enjoy a beer tasting at the Three Ranges Brewery with Fred Fox, Terry’s older brother. You can also grab a bite at the nearby food truck and pizzeria. 

Saturday, August 20: The big day! Get up early and meet at the base of the mountain where you will set off on your hike. There are three different routes available with varying levels of difficulty.

After your hike, meet up with some members of the group to enjoy dinner at the Royal Canadian Legion to celebrate your accomplishment.

Before you leave, be sure to check out the other local restaurants and shops, as well as gorgeous biking trails. You can rent a bike and discover the many trails in the area.

Three Routes

All routes will be led by a local guide.

This route offers a return trip distance of 13 km and a total elevation gain of 950m.

Terry Fox Summit

A total distance of 18 km and an elevation gain of 1,450m, this journey typically takes 10-12 hours to complete and is for experienced hikers.

A Cancer Survivor’s Trek

I participated in the Terry Fox School Run as a kid, and in the Terry Fox Run as an adult after going through my own cancer journey. I’d never done a hike to the top of a mountain of this magnitude before. I was intrigued. I soon decided I could do this and started a training plan that expanded upon my usual 10km running, but also included going up and down thousands of stairs. None of this training prepared me for the emotional journey I was about to take up Mount Terry Fox.
