Race Course for 2017

Below is the course for 2017. It's a 28 mile loop with somewhere between 3100 (strava) and 3800 (trailforks) feet of climbing per lap, depending on what software you believe. About 68% single track, 15% two-track/jeep road, and 17% graded dirt road.

The single track ranges from wide open and fast to narrow cow trail, smooth easy cruising to rocky, technical climbs and descents. The Epic will do 2 laps or you can opt for the One and Done. Treat yourself to some beautiful views and great riding at the Enduro.

Aid Stations:

There will be one aid station about half way through the loop, at the entry point to the Happy Jack trails, and one aid station just after starting the second lap. Each will have water, Honey Stinger gels, bars, waffles & chews; Hammer Endurolyte capsules, Heed, & Perpetuem (solids and powder); Gatorade, and fruit (bananas) & dried fruit, other kinds of energy bars, bagels or bread, peanut butter and jelly or honey, cookies, pretzels, and other snacks.
There will not be cups or bottles to hand you, but we will have plenty of people around to help fill your bottles or packs.

Cut-off Times:

For Epic racers:
Start second lap by noon (5 hours into the race).
Leave the mid-course aid station on lap two by 2:30pm (7.5 hours into the race).

For One and Done racers:
Leave the mid-course aid station by noon (5 hours into the race).

If you miss the cut-off time at the mid course aid station, you will be shown the short way back to the start/finish (5 miles on smooth dirt road). It's up to you to get back on your own. Your race number will be recorded and you will be listed as DNF in the results. You must take off your race number to avoid confusion for race staff.

Pit Crews:

Check out our Pit Crew page.

Course Hazards:

All dirt roads on the course are open to traffic. We will do our best to alert drivers, but not getting smashed by a car is ultimately your responsibility. The course is open to livestock grazing, so don't be surprised to see cattle. Other than that, it's a mountain bike course and you should expect everything associated with that.

Course Marking:

Courses are marked with red diamond shaped signs with black arrows and orange flagging. We may also use orange cones or barracade tape to mark some intersections.

This race is heavily dependent on volunteers!
