A hiker found dead on a mountain in B.C.’s Kootenay region Tuesday has been identified as a former contestant on The Amazing Race Canada.
Kenneth McAlpine died on his 28th birthday, his family confirmed Wednesday, after suffering what RCMP described as a “substantial fall” while hiking alone on Mount Gimli Monday.
Police and search-and-rescue teams began looking for McAlpine after he failed to return to his home in Rossland, B.C., by 7 p.m. as planned, prompting his friends to file a missing person report.
We are all heartbroken over the loss of #amazingracecanada season 5 racer Kenneth McAlpine. Our thoughts are with his friends and family. We are grateful to have had him as part of our Amazing Race Canada family. https://t.co/bqybSXK1jy
