Presented by REALTOR BRANDON CRICHTON, the Seymour Challenge is back! Brandon has been a huge supporter of youth cycling development over the years.

The Mount Seymour climb is 13.1 km long. You gain 904 height meters, so the average gradient is 6.9 %. The climb is ranked 2179 in the world. The maximum slope is 16%. We climb up from the road starting at the intersection near the Old Buck Parking Lot. We will align the race with the Strava segment.
