About the Relay:
The Banff-Jasper was resurrected in 2005 following the end of the classic Jasper-Banff relay which ran from 1980 to 2000. The event is held in honor of our friend and fellow runner Garth Huck, who sadly passed away of a brain tumour in 2004. Since 2005, runners have raised over $500,000 for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
The Banff Jasper Relay is in support of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

Come for the run.

Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors for supporting the Banff Jasper Relay.
