That’s right Big Elk Off-Road MTB Race is bringing you a course worthy of the MASS XC/Endurance season finale! Hang on to your helmets, because you’ll be diving through twisty, rooted single track, rocketing along Big Elk Creek, wondering where your “Happy Thoughts” went at times, blasting through a rock garden, throttling flowy downhills, and torpedoing up undulating climbs. That’s right, it’s not yo’ mama’s course! And because more is more, Endurance racers will have the added delight of tackling bonus single track through Fair Hill’s coveted “South Park” trails.

If you’ve just got to come see this for yourself before race day, join us for a course preview on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday August 5-7 at Fair Hill’s Gallagher Rd. lot located at 489 Gallagher Rd., Elkton, MD 21921. Men and women-led pre-rides will begin at 6 pm, so don’t be late!
