This race provides an experience for everyone as it follows the contours of the beautiful Harmon Lake. The trail provides everything from canopy covered technical to wide-open, fast and flowy singletrack. This year's distances include: Beginner 13-miles, Sport 35-miles, and Expert 55-miles (3 laps). We will be capping the race at 200 participants for 2023, so get registered early! We started offering an E-Bike category back in 2020 for the Sport Race and have received great feedback. We want to give everyone, including E-Bike riders an opportunity to race, therefore the 35-mile Sport Race will have an E-Bike Category again this year!
