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.  The 5 km, 3 km, and 1.5 km loops incorporate some singletrack and stay very close to the meadow. The Kootenay Krusher courses follow the same course as the Crazy Soles trail run.

The trails are part of the Cross River Canyon Recreation Site.


Presented for all age classifications and distances. There are lots of great draw prizes for all participants.


Luxury cabin accommodations and primitive camping are available at Nipika.  Check availability and make a reservation online.

There are also a variety of accommodation options in Radium Hot Springs, a 35-minute drive away: campgrounds, motels, hotels, and resorts.
