Welcome to The Canadian Death Race

Print page

The Canadian Death Race takes place every August Long Weekend in Grande Cache, Alberta, Canada.  

Since the start of the millennium, elite racers have come to the Canadian Rockies to cheat Death in one of the world's toughest adventure races. The 125 km course begins and ends on a 4200 foot plateau, passes over three mountain summits and includes 17,000 feet of elevation change and a major river crossing at the spectacular Hell's Gate canyon at the confluence of the Smoky and Sulphur Rivers.  Extreme athletes, individually and in relays, push themselves to the limits of their endurance against the breathtaking background of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Each year, well-trained and totally committed, they battle heat, cold, altitude and themselves.  Finishing is the prize. And the bragging rights are priceless....CHECK OUT THE TRAILER brought to you by our friends at Barebones Productions.
