Coler’s Noon2Moon MTB Race – 2024

May 3 - May 4

Coler's Noon2Moon MTB Race - 2024
Searcy County Waterfall

Noon2Moon is a 6-hour endurance race, the only Coler Fundraiser event of the year! When you register, you are supporting improvements to your favorite trails at Coler, facilities, and access to affordable classes that make Coler a unique destination for all! Coler Mountain Bike Preserve is a space for the community provided by the Peel Compton Foundation whose mission is to connect the community through nature, education, recreation, and preservation.  This year we’ve eliminated the 12-HR option and added more fun events for the entire family, such as a kid’s ride camp and races hosted by Pedal Kids USA, on Friday, May 3rd.  Kids Activities Equipment Requirements: Bicycle in good working order, a helmet, small backpack, water bottle, snacks.

If racing for 6 hours is not for you, you may register to race our pre-race “hot lap” option, a single lap of the race course with podiums for the top three racers and free entry to amazing raffle prizes. Coler was named by Outside Magazine as “One of the most beloved trails in the state of Arkansas.” Come race with us!

Race Rules:

The Community Bicyclist
  • All 6-hour racers will start the race at noon, the cut-off time is 5:45 PM. Any laps completed after 6:15 PM will not count. It is up to teams and individual racers to decide on the timing of their last lap.
  • Team racers may ride as many laps consecutively as they wish; however, each racer from a team must complete at least one lap during the 6-hour race.
  • If a member of a team has a mechanical issue or a crash that keeps them from completing the lap, they may call to get another rider out on the course. The rider who is out must check in with the timing director to cancel the lap (do not bring the timing chip near timing sensors).
  • Bike changes are allowed between laps, and no bans for a racer assisting another racer to fix a mechanical issue on the race course. Mechanical assistance from a non-racer may only be at the designated Coler mechanic pit tent area.
  • A racer or team must report DNFs as soon as possible to the Timing Director.
  • Race Results Contesting Period: 6:00-6:15 pm.
  •  Allow 15 minutes after the race for results to be finalized. Timing services are provided by Todd Galbraith with EnduraRace
