Kimberley Black Spur Ultra race results

Kimberley Alpine Resort hosted the annual Black Spur Ultra Race on August 24 and 25, 2019.

The annual Black Spur Ultra race took place at Kimberley Alpine Resort on August 24 and 25, 2019 featuring a 108k relay, 108k and 54k solo races through the winding tracks of the ski hill.

This year’s race went off without a hitch, especially compared to last year when racers were shrouded in smoke from nearby forest fires.

According to an article on runningmagazine.ca, Lisa Whitwell not only won the women’s 108k race, but it was also her first ever 100k.

“It was a great weekend, and very well organized,” she told Running Magazine. “I don’t think I would have done it if it wasn’t for [a friend’s] encouragement she gave me a few weeks ago.”
