IMBCS #2: Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy!

Next up for the IMBCS is a return for the 2nd consecutive year to Cedar Rapids for the Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy this coming Sunday, May 1st. Race Director Noel Kehrt and LAMBA have whipped the trail system into Spring shape.


This will be our second XC race of the 2016 season, but will also be our first 4 Hour Marathon Category race of the season, and our first Trail Run Race of the season. These options provide a little something for everyone to enjoy. Last year we had a total of 105 racers take on Beverly Park, and it would be great to bust through that number this year – especially as we show our support for LAMBA and the excellent trail work they do in and around the Cedar Rapids area.

Register online for the Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy HERE.


JUNIORS (age 18 and under) race for free thanks to our GoFundMe campaign to raise money for their entry fees.


Our Title Sponsor – World of Wheels – once again will be providing a $500 purse for the top 2 overall winners in Marathon, COMP, CAT II, and CAT III for both men and women.

Last year for the CAT III, JUNIOR, and Marathon race – we had a mid-race thunderstorm hit.  This caused us to enforce a two hour delay (per our weather guidelines) for the Marathon Category when lightening hit and rain made things greasy…


However, after 2 hours we were treated to perfect hero dirt, sunshine, and plenty of fun for the CAT II, COMP, and CAT I races on this fine trail system.
