The 2016 Paranormal 6hr Race!

This is our 15thyear in a row putting on a fun grass-roots, family event . Solo, Two person & Three person teams will attack the 8 mile lap of wooded, tight, fast and fun singletrack while dodging rocks, roots, bats and beasts!

Show up in costume and get a time bonus for your solo or duo open team! The course and setup are all new for 2016 (Yes it is different than last year!)

Free Kids Race:

This is the fifth year we will be doing the Paranormal Kids Race. It's open for all of the little cyclists 12 and under. They can sign up with their parents between 1:00 and 2:45 on race day. The kids will go off at 3:00 and they should be done in time for the adults to show up for the pre-race meeting at 3:30.


Our friends at CAMBC are going to be grilling and cooking Scud fries again. So bring some cash. All proceeds go towards maintain county bike trails, so not only are you eating great food, you are supporting a great cause!


New Sponsors 3 Notched Brewery  are donating 3 kegs for the race. If there is beer leftover, bring a growler and get it filled up after the award ceremonies! We don't want any of it wasted....
