Most people in Calgary don't know that the famous Deerfoot Trail was named after a legend athlete called Api-Kai-ees (literally “Scabby Dried Meat”)  who had gained a reputation for being  so fast that he is said to have outrun horses on more than one occasion!! He started his career as a messenger, running between villages, delivering important messages to people in Alberta, Saskatchewan and even Montana before he was discovered by Foot Race promoters who quickly realized that they had pure gold on their hands. Renamed Deerfoot, Api-Kai-ees began racing professionally and spectators were immediately blown away by his speed and endurance. His reputation reached as far as New York after running 84 miles in 16 hours in a no-limits race, decisively beating the other competitors. Read more ...
