Organizer: Justin Chadwick and Trevor Anderson

A 550km self-supported, unsanctioned gravel race spanning the Southern Alberta countryside, from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains across the prairie to the Badlands.

The race offers an opportunity to compete, to challenge oneself, to push limits and to set new bests; while fostering senses of community, friendship, exploration, and adventure.

There is no fee to enter the race. It is also not sanctioned or insured. You are responsible for your own safety. Your decisions while on route are yours, and yours alone. Outcomes of those decisions are yours and yours alone.

Additional Info

The 2017 Hurt’n Albert’n 550 brought on plenty of hot weather, dry sand, and freshly groomed gravel roads. Dean Anderson, who placed 2nd at the BC Epic 1000 grand-depart, finished in first place with an unofficial time of 1 day, 11 hours, 57 minutes (on a single speed of course). He was followed closely behind by Tom De Vries with an unofficial time of 1 day, 15 hours, 38 minutes, and Mike Olson who finished with an unofficial time of 1 day, 17 hours, 34 minutes. All finishers completed the course within 3 days, and day 2 saw at least 7 riders back out due to the challenging and dry conditions.

    The website has registration for 2017, is 2018 registration not open yet?

  • Just spoke to the organizers and they are finalizing the 2018 event still but should be wrapped in the next few weeks. Event update will follow. I’ll try to remember to update on here as well when registration is open.
