We will have one solar charging station but you are responsible for all of your charging and battery needs; we provide back up.
Before May 1, 2023 a $25 fee per entrant.
Spouse, partners, friends, kids: Yes! If they are traveling in the same vehicle, no problem. If they are traveling in their own vehicle, they will need to register for a spot, General Fun, and it includes amenities and food.
No. All 24 hour teams can only have one rider/runner on the course at a time. Teammates can take a lap together, but it will only count as one lap.
No. There is definitely not any wi-fi but there are spots in camp and on the course that you can squeak out a bit of cell service to make a call or send a text.
Course maps are released 5 days prior to the event. Check your emails.
Worry, no. Be aware, yes. Elk Basin, as designated by the BLM, is part of Grizzly Bear Habitat. That being said, we will be taking precautions to ensure our camping are is free of unsecured food or attractants. This is also why we include breakfast and dinner, so we can limit cooking which attracts even smaller animals. This IS rattlesnake country so be aware of the 'nope-ropes' on the trails. Occasionally you may see a deer or scare up a grouse.
Yes but a catered dinner (Saturday) and breakfast (Sunday) are provided. Feel free to bring your own snacks or supplemental food. That being said, no campfires, fire pits or glass are allowed. Elk Basin in now included in Grizzly Bear Habitat so we have to abide by all rules and regulations associated with it and because we're here to hit the trails, we don't want people worrying about the bbq grill left behind. If you have a cooking set up inside your RV or camper, feel free to use that.
We'll also have hydration and nutrition at aid stations and on site to keep you fueled.
We have an e-bike division, so yes, you can use them but your entire team is then in the e-bike division. Please register for the E-bike category in registration (different than Mountain Bike division). Thank you!
Friendly dogs are allowed. PLEASE NOTE - IT CAN BE HOT! THIS IS A DESERT AREA. BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT TAKING YOUR DOG AND MAKE SURE THEY can handle heat. They must be on leash or have perfect recall. They cannot be left alone in camp or in your car. Dogs cannot be in the food tent area or on the 24 hour race course. You are responsible for picking up their poop. We will have water around camp. Dog owners should watch out for snakes, cactus, and pad damage due to sandy trails. Remember, not everyone loves your dog, so be respectful and keep your dog with you and under your control at all times. Any problem doggos will be asked to leave and if you have to leave with them, you will not be refunded or credited for the event.
Kids of any age can participate in the events as long as they are capable and do not pose a threat to themselves or others while participating. Please consider your child's ability level before signing them up for an event.
Kids under the age of 14 CANNOT BE LEFT UNATTENDED. This is not a free-for-all and there are no babysitters available. This means you cannot leave your kid at the main camping area while you go ride without another adult present in camp to supervise them.
We will host a short race (1-2 miles) for kids in attendance. TBD Saturday morning of the event. They are welcome to bring bikes and enjoy the trails that are not being used in the race.
We will have a place to fill water on the course and a water tank in camp to fill water bottles or gallon jugs for drinking. We do not have water for RV or Van hookups. It is dry camping so bring the water you need for your campsite.
One person will be the team captain and register your team. This person will establish a team name and then each person will go in and add their name and sign a waiver by going to registration and selecting the team size to sign up (two, four or carnival) then choose to add onto a team. There is not a charge for the teammates except for carnival teams adding a 7th and 8th person.
We'll return your email as soon as possible. Thank you for reaching out!
