2013 Battle the Bear Race Down Mt Carbon

Mt Carbon Descent

~ Rescheduled for October 4th ~

Event Highlights:

The Start/Finish and Race Venue will probably be at Coyote Crossing Picnic Shelter as in years past. Once the water levels recede, we can make more specific plans, but stay tuned, we’re gonna make this an end of season party!  The 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.

With the later date this year, it will be a celebration of fall, and the end of mountain bike season, so bring the family for this annual ritual of off-road fun.  Note there is a $5/vehicle fee for the race.
