Valemount is the nearest community to Mount Robson Provincial Park. Nestled in a valley between three spectacular mountain ranges – the Cariboo Mountains to the west, the Monashee Mountains to the south and the Rocky Mountains to the east and north – Valemount is the proud host of the Mount Robson Marathon.
Participants in any of the running events, except the kids fun run, will pick up their race packages at the Valemount Visitor Centre on Friday September 5 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Valemount has a number of local hotels, RV Parks and campgrounds available for your stay. Accommodation listings and much more information about Valemount can be found on the Tourism Valemount website. We have several partner hotels, cabins, and campgrounds and encourage racers to book with these supporting businesses:
