Wango Tango

November 16 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wango Tango
Arkansas Cycling & Fitness.

IT’S BACK, BETTER AND IMPROVED! The annual “WANGO TANGO” endurance race, a loud and rowdy 4-hour ENDURANCE mountain bike race/party on the City Lake trail system in Siloam Springs Arkansas will include for the first time a 5K and 10K trail run!

You read that right, this year the Wango Tango will include a 5k and 10k trail run on the hidden gem of the Siloam City Lake trails set to take place before the start of the 4-hour mountain bike endurance race. All of this awesomeness is set to take place this year on Saturday, November 16th, 2024!

In a partnership with Siloam Springs Parks & Recreation, the Borderline Ozark Off-Road Cyclists are excited to bring mountain bike racing and trail running to western Benton County!

Along the same vein as the popular ‘Beast of Burden’ event, the Wango Tango features 4-hours of solo and team relay mountain bike racing as well as trail running on beginner and intermediate trails!

The trail run will start at 11 AM and all runners will be off of the trails before the start of the mountain bike endurance race. To add to the mountain bike challenge, a 3 pm start for the endurance race means the sun will set 2 hours into the mountain bike race and competitors will be racing in the dark to finish.

This will be an electronically timed race.

Mountain Bike Award Categories include Solo Male, Solo Male Junior, Solo Female, Solo Female Junior, 4 Man Relay, 4 Woman Relay, 4 Person Co-Ed (any combination of male and female), 2 Person Male, 2 Person Female, 2 Person Co-Ed (1 male and 1 female), and 4 Person Junior co-ed (Can be any combination of male or female Junior racers aged 13-18), E-Bike solo male, and E-bike solo female. Only class 1 E-bikes will be allowed to compete.

Trail Run Award Categories will include top male and female overall finishers, as well as awards for top age category finishers.

Pre-registration for the mountain bike endurance race is ONLY $40/racer (Juniors are just $30) and for the trail run ONLY $25. There WILL NOT BE on-site registration on the day of the event this year.

There will be food from the grill, snacks, and water during the event for all participants. Trophies will be awarded 3 deep in every category.
