Minotaur

Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
2018-08-25 to 2018-08-25 MST

Set in the high alpine of the ruggedly beautiful Crowsnest Pass against the continental divide, a new adventure experience awaits. The Minotaur is approximately 15-20 km of demanding mountain terrain, but it’s not a trail race. Competitors will use their mental and physical stamina to overcome natural challenges along the course, but it’s not an obstacle course race. The route will be sparsely marked, and competitors will test their route finding skills along a changing landscape, but this isn’t an adventure race. So what is the Minotaur? It’s the chance to find out who you are and what you’re really made of.
