It's a singeltrack trifecta! A three-pack of mountain bike races! This year, Big Woods Classic will have a new twist.

Due to COVID-19 and the inability to have large, in-person gatherings, this year’s Big Woods Classic will take place virtually over a two-week period beginning July 11 and concluding July 26.

To triple the fun, we are adding the Elm Creek and Murphy-Hanrehan singletrack trails to the event. Race one course or all three! Citizen and competitive categories for all ages and abilities available.

You can race any time and submit your results through an online portal during the two-week window. The trails are open to the public, so please be respectful of other riders. The three courses will be marked for the duration of the event.

Ride all three courses and get an exclusive invite to pre-ride the brand new Carver Singletrack Trail hosted by One Track Mind. More details to come; don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Registration is closed.

Find updated virtual format information, course details, trail etiquette and more.

No volunteers are needed for this event.
