    Roughly 14 hours! Within those 14 hours, we will have last-minute packet pick up, race announcements, race start for 12 & 6-hour mountain bike races, loads of other fun stuff, and awards!
  • What are the trails that will be included?
    That’s a surprise for now! But plan on getting a little bit of everything. A dash of Esther’s and Oscar’s, a healthy serving of Fireline, and maybe even some greenway.

    Your race, a meal ticket, and a Noon 2 Moon medal.
  • What are the prizes?
    Cool stuff from our sponsors and local businesses, as well as cash prizes for the 12 hour PRO open class.

    Coler Mountain Bike Preserve is a community space provided by the Peel Compton Foundation.

    Any Coler parking lot (list out). We also recommend riding in from home or carpooling!

    We will have spectator heckle zones, kids’ activities and races, a movie, and more!
