Welcome to the CRUX
The Canmore Crux Gravel Bike Race will take place in the Canadian Rockies this coming September! What better way to finish off your season that with a fun and unique race at one of Canada’s crown jewels! We are excited to work with the Canmore Nordic Center to bring a new event. A top 5 overall podium will be awarded to gravel participants… In 2023 we will be adding a new distance into the race for 2023. The "Crux Lite" will take place on the same course at the full distance 80km event, but will only consist of 2 laps of the course.
We encourage our participants to spend the weekend (outside of the race) exploring Canmore and Banff and all the Bow Valley has to offer. Many campsites are still available within a 20 minute drive of the race venue- and a number of hotel rentals are available at a fair rate. We have also conveniently arranged for a 9:00am start in order to let athletes based in Calgary to drive up "morning of". We strive to make this event a unique, friendly weekend where you can connect with your friends and family after the event and participate in an inspiring, grassroots event for an affordable cost.
