Health and safety precautions

We are still continuing to work with the state and local guidelines to open fun, healthy event. We will be complying with CDC health & safety standards to ensure everyone can come outside and have some fun while staying safe.

Please stay safe and respectful of others as we all do what we can to help everyone stay safe together. Thank you.

The Course

All 3 legs of the race course are the same. It is a wide fire road 6.5 miles out before turning around and heading back the same way you came, for a total of 13 miles. The first leg will be horse riding, followed by running, then mountain biking. There are some awesome hills and great views.

The fire road is very wide, and not very technical, footing will be good no matter what the weather brings. Aid stations will be plentiful along the course for athletes, and water and hay will be available for horses as well. A volunteer will be taking numbers at the turnaround to verify you made it

This race course is located in the Pine Creek Wilderness with permissions granted by the U.S.F.S. so be sure to respect the course and the surrounding lands.

Camping

Camping is available less than a mile down the road from the start line at EPIC RECESS Ranch! There are plenty of corrals for your equine team mate, and wide open spaces for your tent or however you plan on staying the night. Potable water and porta potties will be available. Camping is $10 and horse corrals are $5 per horse.
