Get ready for the new and improved 2019 Gnome: Registration is open. Time Trial is May 18th, Cross-Country Race is May 19.

Also, we are working with the park and have blocked the campground for reservations for “racers only” in hopes we can correct a lot of the parking issues and logistics issues we have seen in the past. Trail information available here.
