For the finale we're heading to one of our favorite riding place Capitol Forest, home of some of the most amazing singletrack in Washington. In the last three years our events raised over $10,000 for Friends of Capitol Forest (FOCF) to build and maintain this awesome trail network, and 10% of your 2013 entry fee will go to FOCF.
Get ready for an epic ride! With over 160 miles of singletrack trails capitol forest is truly a mountain biker's paradise. The trails are well maintained, and most of the course is rolling, though there are some fireroad climbs and fast downhills. 80-90% of the course will be singletrack, with very little overlap due to the incredible amount of superb trails out there. There will be plenty of aid stations along the course and these will be fully stocked with fresh fruit, sandwiches, Clif products (gels, bloks, bars), electrolytes (nuun, clif electrolyte), FRS, cookies, etc. The course will be well marked and accurately measured. Categories are Male Open, Male 40-49, Male 50+, Female Open, Female 40+, Singlespeed.
