Sinister 7 Ultra — a race that may be the greatest challenge of your life. The 100-mile, 50-mile, and 50K courses will take you through the most rugged, remote, and beautiful terrain in Alberta’s stunning Rocky Mountains. With over 6,600m of elevation gain across the 100-mile course, this race will punish those who are not prepared.
Sinister 7 is open to solo runners or teams of up to seven and racers have 30 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 have three distance options in the 2022 race: the 100-mile, the 50-miler (half of leg 4, + legs 3 through 1), and the 50km (half of leg 4 + leg 2 and 1).
In 2022, we will be running the Sinister 7 Ultra course in reverse. This comes with great logistical challenges, which is why we have not done it sooner, but with great challenge comes great reward!
