Information for 2023 will be updated below as the date draws closer. This was placed as a calendar holder for the 2023 date. 



Welcome to Iron Furnace 2023, A Midatlantic Super Series Endurance Event. This race will be in the MASS series for the three lap option as an endurance event. 

We have plans to bring you a lap event consisting of a choice of one, two or three laps. Course is as noted in the ridewithgps file/link here https://ridewithgps.com/trips/86463707 

Start/Finish will be in the Furance area of the park as in other years of this race. The course will be a nice mix of singletrack, double track and lots of rocky goodness. Please note in the event of rain or weather events the course may be altered or changed.

This will be the only race we are having at the park for 2023 as the beloved or maybe hated Bearscat 50 will not be happening in 2023 as the interest for that race appears to have gone away. The course for this one will challenge the body and mind of anyone willing to take it on and that is why we decided to offer multiple lap options. 

Watch this page and our facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/Black-Bear-Cycling-191769640859522 for more information. 

This is a self supporting event and you can have a feed zone at the lap turn after the finish line. We will not be having any neutral support or aid station. 

Camping-We have group site #002 for 4/30. This is tent site only and primitive with restroom nearby. Must arrive prior to 8 PM. Watch pre-race e-mail for any other details on the camping. 

Stay tuned for additional information as it comes out and this will most likely be on the Facebook page however we will update this information as needed to keep everyone in the loop.
