Race Information

Race Categories

Race categories are broken into youth, novice, intermediate, and advanced racers, in order to provide every level of racer the opportunity to experience a safe, enjoyable challenge that fits their goals and abilities.

Format for the series is mass start. We will have spacing in the start area and may have multiple waves depending on number of participants.

Fat bikes are welcome, though there is no separate category for fat bikes.

Schedule

The loops consist of variations of our Area 36 trails at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park. Each lap is a little over 3 miles.

  • 5:00PM Youth (13 years old and younger): 15-20 minutes / 1 lap race
  • 5:30PM Novice (all ages): 30-50 minutes / 2 laps
  • 6:15PM Advanced (13+ years old): 50-70 minutes / 4 laps
  • 6:30PM Kids fun race: (2-8 year olds): Free, but need to fill out a waiver. On the skills loops, usually ride for 10 min. Depending on numbers may separate into two waves of age groups or striders/riders.
  • 7:15PM Intermediate (11+ years old): 40-50 minutes / 3 laps
