The mountain bike portion of the race will consist of inland single track trails and the trail running leg (5k) will consist of the Frisco Peninsula trail offering amazing views of the Dillon Reservoir and the Ten Mile Range and will also guide racers through some of the inland trails as well.
Paddle: Start at the Frisco Bay Marina > go around buoy > Finish at Pine Cove Boat Ramp
Bike: see course description in detail below **We recommend that you have intermediate mountain biking skills to compete in this event. A mountain bike is required to race.**
Run: see course description in detail below
If you are planning pre-ride/run the course, I highly recommend you print out the map, course description listed above and also this map of all of the trails on the Frisco Peninsula. The course can be tricky to find on your own as some of the trails are unmarked or have confusing intersections. Please know that the course will be marked extremely well for the race!
Also, if you do pre-ride/run the course, we recommend you either park at the Frisco Adventure Park or in the Two Below Zero parking lot that is located just after you turn from Recreation Way onto the Campground Road. This is a mulch lot and is labeled ‘Two Below Zero Parking’. If you choose to park at the actual transition area, you will have to pay a $7 USFS fee per vehicle.
First things first, all racers must provide their own equipment for each leg of the event; stand-up-paddle board (SUP,) personal flotation device (PFD,) mountain bike, helmet and running shoes. If you don’t own a SUP you can rent one locally from the Frisco Bay Marina, Kodi Rafting, Podium Sports or Shaboomee. Please plan ahead and come prepared with your SUP rental lined up before July 13, 2019!
Racers can pick up their bibs at the Frisco Bay Marina, 267 Marina Road, in Frisco on Friday, July 12, 2019 from 5:00pm-7:00pm or on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 7:00am – 8:30am. Please note that if you are picking up your race bib on Saturday morning you must pick up your bib prior to dropping your bike and running gear at the Pine Cove Campground. If you are having a friend pick up your bib for you, please print out the event waiver, sign it and have your friend turn it in. No signed waiver = no bib.
