Blue Knob Mountain Bike Association

1st Annual Mountain Bike Challenge and Festival

Blue Knob Mountain Bike Association (BKMTBA) is holding a mountain bike festival and 13 plus-mile race that will incorporate both the trail systems at Blue Knob All Season Resort and Blue Knob State Park on August 13th.

The main purpose and goals of BKMTBA for holding the festival and race are to bring attention, notoriety, and patronage to both Blue Knob All Season Resort and Blue Knob State Park.  It is the belief of BKMTBA, that the Blue Knob Mountain area, as a whole, and all of its amenities are relatively unknown within and outside the state.   It is the stated goal of BKMTBA, that by increasing the number of events that are open to the general public as well as events that target specific groups, such as the mountain bike community, the Blue Knob Mountain area, and the surrounding communities of Blair, Bedford, Cambria, and Centre counties will be identified as weekend and vacation destinations.

Blue Knob Mountain Bike Challenge and Festival, has been registered and advertised on BikeReg.com services and website.  Racers can follow the link https://www.bikereg.com/blue-knob-mountain-bike-challenge-and-festival  to register.  The site allows racers to register and pay through the site. 

The race will have six categories that participants can choose from.  Men’s Open 18-49 y/o, Men’s Youth <18 y/o, and Men’s 50+ y/o, Women’s Open 18-49 y/o, Women’s Youth <18 y/o, and Women’s 50+ y/o.  The registration fee for categories for men and women 18-50+ will be $40 and youth categories will be $30.  All registered racers will receive a complimentary race shirt.

Race-day registrations and check-in will begin at 8:00 AM on August 13th.  Race-day registrations will be an additional $10.00.  The race will start promptly at 10:00 AM on August 13th, rain or shine, for all 18+ age categories and 10:15 AM for all youth.  The race will begin at the Blue Knob Ski Resort lodge and head into the State Park for its first stage, followed by a downhill stage to the trails around the lodge and golf course, followed by a grueling climb back up the slopes and single-track trails to the finish.  Awards and prizes will be presented at 3:00 PM on August 13th at the finish line.
