Find out what happened last weekend at the Black Spur Ultra 54K and 108K races

The Black Spur Ultra at Kimberley Alpine Resort includes a 108K relay, 108K, and 54K solo races with gnarly singletrack, challenging climbs, and scenic views. This year, runners toed the line for the third race in the Sinister Triple series–the Sinister 7 Ultra, Canadian Death Race, and Black Spur Ultra. Black Spur Ultra is a big party, which starts and finishes at the base of the ski hill. People come together and hang out at the transition area to run, cheer, volunteer, eat burgers, drink beer, and listen to music. It was a no pavement party in between the Purcell and Rocky mountains, and here are the results:
