Black Hills Back40 (40-MILES; 8:00 a.m. START)
Shorty (20-MILES; 8:00 A.M. START)
MINI (10-MILES; ~8:00 A.M. START)
We are part of the Youth race series for high school (20-miles; 8:00 start), middle school and elementary school aged racers (10-miles; ~8:15 a.m. start)
This year, we will be using the same lap course that we used last year. Though we were sad to lose our usual epic, one-lap course to logging activities, the majority of those we interviewed after the 2017 race actually liked our new course better! Who would have thought?! Just the same,we are planning on re-routing some of the long two-track climbs to include a greater portion of singletrack.
ATTENTION: WE ONLY HAVE PERMISSION TO CROSS THE PRIVATE PROPERTY FROM WILD IRISHMAN TO USFS PROPERTY ON THE DAY OF THE RACE. PLEASE PRE-RIDE THE LOOP FROM ANY OTHER ACCESS POINTS, SUCH AS SHANKS QUARRY, LOG PORCH ROAD OR SCHROEDER ROAD. THANK YOU!
