Race check-in and parking will be at the Blankets Creek Trailhead parking lot. Once you have completed check-in, you may stage bikes and transitional gear in the transition area. There will be a volunteer in the transition area to watch your gear, so any jackets, food, or post-race clothing can be left there. Additional Parking will be available at River Church, which is just west of Blankets Creek on Sixes Road.

Fuel Station for MTB Race

There will be a neutral fuel/hydration station that riders will pass by at the end of their first 15 mile lap. This aid station will offer water and Hammer Heed to fill bottles, as well as Hammer Gels. You may leave a 1 gallon ziploc bag at this location if you wish to have your own drink mix/snacks for lap number 2.

    Inclement Weather

    The race will run rain or shine, however, the Race Director reserves the right to cancel or modify segments of the event as deemed necessary for preservation of the trail and/or participant safety. No refunds will be given in the event of an act of God that requires cancellation of the race for the saftey of participants. Once the race has started, no refunds will be given due to delayed start or early conclusion of the race. If we have to end the race early, chances are, you will be glad we are doing so.
