The Course

The Kootenay Krusher course is a 25 km loop that is predominantly singletrack.  The course follows the beautiful Kootenay and Cross Rivers.  The 50 km event does two laps of the 25 km loop, while the 25 km does only one circuit.  The 5 km, 3 km, and 1.5 km loops incorporate some singletrack and stay very close to the Nipika Meadow area. The Kootenay Krusher courses will follow the same course as the Crazy Soles trail run.


Check back in winter for ’22 race registration!
