2019 marks the 5th year of Black Spur Ultra. The race is tough and combines all of the elements that we love in an ultra. Big climbs, no pavement, scenic single track, then long stretches where you can open up and run fast. Choose from the 54 KM, 108 KM, and 108 KM relay options.

With one central area and three loops, this is one of the easiest races your support crew or family will ever attend. Kimberley is also the perfect place for a getaway or family vacation.
