Fat Bike Race (Race #3)
Mar 1 all-day

Challenge the winter and register for this fun race.

The course will be a mix of single track and double track, the ratio of which will be determined closer to the date of the race, as snow conditions will dictate how much single track we can include, without subjecting the racers to “hike a bike”. Lap length will be somewhere close to 10km, give or take, requiring 2 laps for the short course, or 4 laps for the long.

Race starts at 10am, Registration opens at 8am.

$45 per entry. Day of registration will incur a $15 penalty, so sign up now.
OCA license is required. Single day OCA permits can be purchased for $12 on site if you do not have an OCA license.
