New Ultra for Canada – The Sinister 7

Posted on January 2, 2008 by


Welcome to the Sinister 7; a race that is destined to be known as the toughest ultramarathon in Canada. The 135km course will take you through the most rugged, remote and beautiful terrain in Alberta’s stunning Rocky Mountains. With over 4,000m of elevation gain across the course, be ready for the challenge of your life.

The Sinister 7 is open to solo runners or teams of seven and racers have 27 hours to complete the grueling event. The course is split into seven stages, each featuring a geographic and historic highlight of the area. The race’s name is inspired by the treacherous Seven Sisters Mountain that looms over much of the course.

We believe in fair reward for the abuse you take so we are pleased to offer a number of high profile awards, including a prize purse of up to $1,000 in each category including top female, top male and top team. To celebrate their personal achievements, all racers are invited to take part in the closing celebration and awards.
