Saturday June 1st. On-site Registration is available Friday 4-6pm or Saturday 6-9am. 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 25 after 10 am, and Sunday May 26th 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. 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 race, join us in the dining hall for post race spaghetti dinner and Oskar Blues Awards Ceremony.
