Race Description


The race will start at Jade Bay beach, with the long course competitors will heading out followed 30 minutes later by the short course racers towards Rattle Snake point. As you cruise around the point you will see a giant White Swan Here the short course racers will turn and head back towards Rattle Snake Point and the paddle staging area. The long course racers will say hello to the White Swan and continue on towards Cosens Bay beach heading to the right around your first giant Pink Flamingo paddling up along the shoreline to yet another Giant Pink Flaming! Write turns only around these babys while you head back towards Rattle Snake point and the paddle staging area. Place your board, run up the path following the flagging to the bike staging area to either tag your rider or get riding yourself. Your ride will start you out on a bike of double track and then take you right to some stunning, fun single track trails. Short Course Riders- At the Wall the short course will take a hard-right turn and head for their climb up the Wall over the top of the mountain across to Look Out trail, back to Comin Around the Mountain to bike staging area. The long Course Riders- continue on to Cosens Bay parking lot down into Bear Valley, up Beaver Basher, Three Rings and my personal favorite trail, Stone Free. Now just follow the flags to a fun decent. Your decent will start out super easy and fast with a dramatic turn to the left down Twista, Lower HRT, Cabin Trail, all the way down to Gingerly where you climb your way to the Wall, over the top of Look Out Trail, down Little Moab, Comin Around the Mountain and back to the bike staging area where both distances will start your run. At this point let’s hope you have left a little in the tank for what’s to come! A ton of fun all the way to the finish line where we I’ll be waiting with your finishers medal, high 5’s and food
