Take your Halloween Spirit to Nature’s Proving Grounds! Try your skills on one of the most challenging trails with the best views in the Four Corners. What better way to celebrate our unique landscape than to experience it! Registration information will be available by August 15th.
The Battle will feature 4 different trail runs (34 Mile Ultra, 17 Mile, 4 Mile, 1 Mile Fun Run) and 2 different MTB rides (17 Mile and 4 Mile) with CASH PRIZES! These trails have some epic gains of up to 5800 ft. This is a Halloween event so all competitors will be in costume, and dogs are welcome (in costume of course) for the 4-mile trail run. Bring the kids out for a 1 mile “Trick-or-Treat” fun run. Brought to you by The Strike Zone, BLM, City of Farmington, Alien Bike Shop and 505 Cycles.
Mountain Bike Races:
All courses feature a mostly single-track desert landscape through pinon and juniper trees. Be prepared for anything from loose sandy hard pack dirt, sandstone slickrock, and clay mud if it rains. Trails feature badlands, arroyos, hoodoos, tent rocks, etc. Find more at mtbproject.com/trail/6139682/farmington-pinon-mesa.
