About Black Spur Ultra

Kimberley is a secluded gem nestled between the Purcell and Rocky mountains. With kilometre after kilometre of single and double track accessible right from the edge of town, Kimberley is a natural choice for a mountain ultra.

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.
