The races cover 80 kilometers (80k/49.7mi) in distance, in a figure-8 design, consisting of four 20k loops. The 50k course will cover 2.5 laps of the course. The weekend consists of two separate events taking place on and between the trails used for the 1980 Winter Olympics. These trails will be a mix of single-track and double-track with challenging climbs and fun descents. Mostly single-track for maximum fun, but enough double-track to allow for safe passing. The figure 8 design will have competitors coming through “Race Village” 4 times for family and friends to cheer you on!

Races will start and end in our Mount Van Hoevenberg race village
