Race Course

The course will consist of a 4 mile loop of closely spaced, tight, and twisty island singletrack. Rocks, roots, concrete rubble, bricks, old building foundations, and slag debris will be the norm for most trails on the island. There isn’t much elevation change but lots of tight corners mean short punchy efforts. Do your interval training! Pre-riding the course is recommended to get familiar with passing areas (there aren’t many).


Parking is limited. Please be respectful and ONLY park where signs are posted.
