Mt Carbon Descent

~ This race has been postponed ~

Due to flooding in Bear Creek Lake Park, the race has been postponed.  We are working with the Park to reschedule the race.  The best way to receive the latest updates is on our facebook page.

Event Highlights:

The Start/Finish and Race Venue is back under the cottonwoods this year!  The shady picnic area next to the lake makes for a relaxing wooded area for spectating and awards. This intimate venue and Pit Zone offers a fantastic setting for hot racing action. There will be a sponsors  chalet with product sampling, and a Kidz Zone with jumpy house, games, and our free Warriors Kids Race. Celebrate spring racing in Colorado with the family at this annual ritual of off-road fun!  Note there is a $5/vehicle fee for the race.
