We're offering great prizes for the event again this year. Awards go 3-deep in all categories.


We will have a water station at the Dasani shelter between Wild Turkey and Owls Roost. There will also be some snacks at the station. Riders are ultimately responsible for any food. You must finish on the bike you started the race on!

The race loops will be timed but the sections leading to each trail will not be timed. The total race length counting non-timed segments is approximately 30 miles.  YOU MUST RACE STAGES IN ORDER FROM 1-5 because we have cutoff times. Don't want to race all the segments? No problem. When you're done then head on back to the shelter at Bur-Mil for food and fun.  We've also added a "Just Ridin' Along" category for those who want to participate, but not actually race.  

The event will begin at Kingfisher Trail on Doggett Road. Shuttles will take riders and their bikes to the trailhead from the pool parking lot at Bur-Mil Park.  You should get to the shuttle area at least 30 minutes prior to your wave going off.  You are welcome to ride your bike to the Stage 1 start area at Doggett Road, or be dropped off at this location: Townsend Forest Ln S. NO PARKING is allowed on Doggett Road.

You will be on some roads, so blinkie lights are highly recommended.  A police officer will be at busy crossings but still be careful when crossing.
