Warmup to the ORAMM or just come out and ride a 26 mile course that doesn’t have you riding in circles! This is backcountry racing at its finest with a shorter course and still all the amenities of a long distance endurance race. This race will run on some of the same trails as the ever popular Off Road Assault on Mt Mitchell. The race will still tackle 3,600′ of climbing over 26 miles as you hit some ORAMM highlights like Kitsuma, Star Gap, Heartbreak Ridge and Jarrett Creek. Celebrate with a huge after party on the picturesque Gateway Museum grounds.
