Run for Minds: Broken Goat Challenge 2024

Empower mental health with Broken Goat Challenge. Run for change.

In our everyday lives, amidst smiles and conversations, there are individuals wrestling with unseen battles of mental illness. These are more than statistics; they’re your neighbors, friends, and colleagues. Each person’s journey is unique, and their struggles are deeply human. By humanizing these experiences, we can foster understanding and meaningful connections, extending a hand of compassion to those silently navigating the intricate landscapes of their minds.

Stepping into this narrative of mental health, the Canadian Mental Health Association emerges as a guiding force. Dedicated to breaking the stigma and offering support, this charity stands alongside individuals on their mental health journeys. Through advocacy, education, and community engagement, they champion the cause of mental well-being. Join their mission, as every contribution becomes a building block in the bridge to brighter tomorrows.

Embarking on a transformative journey, the Broken Goat Challenge aligns its purpose with the Canadian Mental Health Association’s mission. This charity run, set against the picturesque backdrop of scenic trails, is more than a physical feat—it’s a stride towards mental health awareness and support. Lace up your shoes and join us on July 20 for an empowering day filled with camaraderie and resilience. Here are the details for this impactful occasion:

Broken Goat is located in the beautiful Kootenay Rockies Region of British Columbia

Broken Goat 12km is a challenging route that starts off at the base of Red Mountain Resort and quickly climbs up to the summit of Red Mountain. Runners can expect to run on some of the best single track Rossland has to offer! Mega views. Mega fun!

​Broken Goat 25km follows the same start as the 52km course and includes the summit of Mount Plewman and traverses along the beautiful high alpine “7 Summits” trail and over Unnecessary Ridge. The majority of the course cruises at an average elevation of 2000m (6550ft) and showcases lofty ridge lines between Nancy Greene Summit and Red Mountain, offering 360 degree views.
Broken Goat 52km is one of BC’s most challenging and scenic ultra’s. This is a point to point route which takes place on the beautiful “7 Summits” high alpine trail and accesses several peaks & ridges along the way while soaking up 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. Participants must be prepared for a long and strenuous journey in remote alpine terrain and also must be comfortable self-supporting themselves until they reach Grey Mountain – 23km into the race.
