Bust a lung this Saturday!

For those with lungs at full capacity, registration is still open for the Fernie Lost Boys Lungbuster Mountain Bike Challenge this weekend.

For those with lungs at full capacity, registration is still open for the gruelling Fernie Lost Boys Lungbuster Mountain Bike Challenge taking place this weekend.

The Lungbuster is one of the most infamous challenges in mountain biking, but this year also has categories for those who prefer to run than ride.

So if you think you’re tough enough for a hard core hill climb, sign up and challenge yourself in the ultimate race, attempting to mountain bike, or run 6.9 km, or 2,100 vertical feet up to Lost Boys Café at Fernie Alpine Resort.

The Lungbuster starts at the base area of the resort and finishes at the top of the Timber Express Chairlift at scenic Lost Boys Café. Registration is from 8 a.m. this Saturday for a 9:15 a.m. start time.

Current record holders from the bike category are Geoff Clark with a time of 38 minutes and 4 seconds for the men and Christine Misseghers with 41 minutes and 5 seconds for the women.

Helmets are mandatory for all biking category competitors and all competitors (bike and run) are strongly recommended to carry water with them (water bottle or hydration backpack.)
