Saturday – Sunday May 31st – June 1st. On-site Registration is available Friday 5-6pm or Saturday 6-9am, or Sunday 7:00-8:30 Must check-in one hour prior to start. Cash or checks only, no credit cards.
For Pre-riding, park at camp Headquarters on the right hand side of road, across from flag poles – where registration was last year. We’ve scheduled the pre-ride for Saturday May 24 after 10 am, and Sunday May 25th before 5pm, and the course is marked for inspection pre-riding. If you want to pre-ride on another day, the Ranger has said he doesn’t have a problem with it, but YOU MUST close all gates that you pass through!!
Print off the Course Map and take with you on your pre-ride. The course will be marked but it’s always good to have a map.
IMPORTANT TO CLOSE GATES when you go through them on your pre-ride. There are cattle and horses that need to stay in their fields!!!

Race #4 in The Series. Held outside the quaint village of Elbert on the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, this venue harkens back to a time of windmills and cowboys. Intimate camping at the venue offers a, well – peaceful – setting in which to relax with fam and friends. The 22 mile loop winds through low hills of Black Forest and Ponderosa Pine, which is sure to put a big ring grin on competitors faces as this private course is a real delight. The views of Pikes Peak and rolling prairie are memorable.
After the races, join us in the dining hall for post race spaghetti dinner on Saturday, and/or gourmet pancake breakfast on Sunday.
The quiet, back in time feeling at the Ranch makes it a great opportunity to bring the family and enjoy the solitude in the woods.
