You will be challenged to see how many times you can complete a marked loop course within a 6-hour time limit. Each loop will cover ten miles of mind, body, and technique testing terrain incorporating classic GMT standbys and recently hand-built gnar. In the spirit of all Peak races, this is an opportunity to test your limits.
50K & 6 Hour Loop Course (subject to change)
About the Race: Our race’s diabolical origins date back to the 666 race eight years ago, which featured a short, but brutal, six-mile loop ridden for six hours up steep skidder roads and through our budding trail system, barely recognizable to what it’s grown into now. The other six may have stood for the beast that we roasted over a pit for the post-race feast. Our trail offerings have quadrupled since then, and the contest has also morphed to take advantage of the boon, but we still retain the same wild spirit of that first race. A portion of the income from the race will benefit the stewardship and growth of the Green Mountain Trails.
About the Trails: The Green Mountain Trails are a fast-growing multi-use network of flowy singletrack over varied terrain in Pittsfield and Stockbridge, Vermont eight miles North of Killington. There is a thousand feet of climbing and descending. Though a majority of the trails are relatively smooth and flowy, there are several miles (and growing) of rooty, rocky, technical singletrack. Over 100 switchback berms that make the long descents a blast. More details at www.gmtrails.org.
