A Unique Gravel Grinder

Hunt of the North is not your typical gravel event. Not a race, the Hunt is a true test of your gravel cycling skills. Riders will need skills of navigation, proficiency on dirt, a readiness to support other riders and the patience to look at their surroundings. While optional routes may be provided, we encourage all participants to find their own course in preparation for the Hunt.

Courses are not marked, and we will have at least one centrally located aid station. All riders must return to the Canyon Showroom by 12:30PM to be eligible for the raffle and enjoy our event party.

2019 ENDURANCE Course

Course Details: Between 59 miles / 6000 ft elevation

Don’t let the mileage fool you, as this will feel more like you’re choking down a waffle than snacking on a wafer. This will be the most challenging sub 5 hour grind you may ever experience! Just ask 2 time BWR champion Larissa Conners who was the only rider to finish the course in 2018, and Mat Stephens who participated in the 2019 Hunt. Steep gradients, gnarly roots, technical singletrack, multiple water crossings and the occasional ladder will welcome those who dare to take on the endurance course. Crafted only for the strongest of riders who can complete it in under 5 hours, as this would be an all day sufferfest for most mortals.

2019 CROSS Course

Course Details: 51 miles / 4700 ft elevation

2019 Road Plus course

Course Details: Between 44 miles / 3700 ft elevation
