Alberta, CA
53 km

Start anywhere in the town of Canmore then summit Grotto, Lady Mac, Ha Ling and EEOR, with running between, then finish at the same spot you started.  Here's an account by Andy Reed:

And another by Phil Villeneuve:

Canmore Runner has information on this route and the FKT history. The route is "around 53km of running, with 4,892m of ascent".

Times have also been set for the "Canmore Triple Crown" - these same peaks minus Grotto - but as far as we're aware FKTs for the Quad are quicker.  Cal Neff posted (6/17/2014) about the evolution of the Triple & Quad:  "Somewhere along the way Grotto was added to the challenge and the name has also evolved from Canmore 4 Peaks, Canmore Challenge, to the Canmore Quad - both Phil Villeneuve ( and Andy Reed ( have blogged the details."
