Rails to River Endurance XC Mountain Bike Race
This race is actually three separate races – novice (1 lap), sport (2 laps), and expert (3 laps). The beginner race starts at 9am, the sport at 11am, and expert at 2pm (see details below). The timing is intentional as to have only one race going on at any time. In other words, one race ends before the next race starts. This limits the amount of bikes (and people) on the trails at any time so you’ve got plenty of room to crush it!!
The staging area for this race is the Large Pavilion inside Lake Fairfax Park. There will be signs and volunteers helping your park once you enter Lake Fairfax Park.
Check-in begins 90 minutes before your race starts. For example, check-in begins at 7:30am for the beginner race that starts at 9am. Please arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of your race. It takes time to park, check-in, use the bathroom, and get ready to race.
