Due to the flooding last fall, and the need to allow a chance for the grass to grow back, we’ve moved the Start/Finish and Race Pavilion for the Bike Race to the Pelican Point Picnic Shelter on the south side of lake. This intimate new venue and Pit Zone offers a fantastic setting for hot racing action. Bring your noise makers and join the party. 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 entrance fee at the gatehouse.
Note the Start/Finish Venue for the Trail Run on Sunday will be at Coyote Crossing Picnic Shelter on north side of Park.
The course will run clockwise again this year. See updated Course Map.
Tents, coolers, and supplies can be set up along the course in the Pit Zone.
