About Us


After successfully launching our one of a kind alpine wilderness race Minotaur, we started brainstorming on another event. We pride ourselves on creating unique, racer focused events that are borne from our own experiences and passion.

The concept of night running certainly isn’t new, but there are only a handful of night races on the scene and very few are non-urban terrain.

The beginnings of Icarus were hashed out during a diner style breakfast at one of our favorite local eateries, and the rest is history. We hope you’ll have as much fun partaking in this event as we did planning it.


Located approx 2 hours southwest of Calgary, the Crowsnest Pass is a mecca of year round recreational opportunities.

We’re proud to live, work and play in the Crowsnest Pass; but nothing gives us greater pride than helping to build a healthy and active community.

Stop by spry on main street Blairmore to learn all about our amazing trail network, cool gear and local events.

Our Team

Andrew and Erin Fairhurst and Ian and Susan Lowe-Wylde are all Crowsnest Pass residents and business owners.  Here’s why they all love night running:

Andrew: It adds an extra element both mentally and physcially, plus it’s more fun than sleeping.

Erin: There’s something about running in the darkness that makes me feel wide awake and completely focused.

Ian: Night running gives me a whole new perspective on my backyard trails…night is like another dimension!

Susan: Night running makes me feel invincible!
