From the creators of the Sinister 7 Ultra, we are proud to bring you the Black Spur Ultra; a race wrought from the winding, technical single track that trail runners dream about. No pavement, big climbs through rugged terrain, and stunning scenery. In its first year many racers dubbed Black Spur an "instant classic". Hosted at Kimberley Alpine Resort, you can walk to the start line right from your hotel room.
Black Spur Ultra Distance Options:
– 108k solo
– 54k solo
– 108k Team Relay (teams of 2 to 6)
Awards are presented in Female and Male categories for the soloists, and Coed, Female and Male for teams.
ACU National Championship:
Black Spur Ultra 54k is the Association of Canadian Ultramarathoners Championship event for 50k trail. The top female and male Canadians will be the national record holder in this category for 2016.

We want to keep people racing throughout the year. To help with this, the first 50 teams that enter the Black Spur Ultra will also gain early entry into Sinister 7 Ultra 2017.
