About This Activity

When the day is long, race long. Trail runners and mountain bikers come together on the longest day of summer to celebrate off-road, human-powered sport. In the spirit of unity, runners and riders, for a short time (30 mins) will share the 5-mile UNITY course.

DISTANCE UPDATE FROM THE ORGANIZERS: Due to an event schedulling conflict at the ranch, our course area was significantly reduced, forcing us to cancel the longest distances. There will be no 4 hr trail run or 8 hr MTB on 5/21. And by request, we've added a shorter, 2-hour MTB option.
This mountain circuit race will start in the afternoon and continue into the evening. Riders register for either a 2 or 4 hour MTB race. 4-hr riders start at 3 PM and 2-hr riders start at 5 PM. All mountain bike racers finish at 7 PM. Runners in the 2-hour trail run start 6:30 PM and should plan to finish around 8:30 PM.

Don't miss this summer celebration on a private ranch in the high country. Come solo or bring a friend and plan to enjoy all the mountain west has to offer. Post-race cookout and cold Colorado microbrews await you at the finish. We're keeping this first race on the ranch low-key, so no finisher medals or shirts year one. Proceeds benefit the Eagle River Fire District (Eagle Firefighters Assn) and the 4-Eagle Ranch Foundation.
Course Description: Races will be on combination dirt road and trail. Course will traverse a private ranch and include dirt road and single track traii. Course difficulty is moderate: rolling hills, flat stretches, with natural obstacles such as sagebrush, rocks and water crossings.
