    Registration

    Online registration has not yet opened, but early registrations will be $30 and day-of $35. On site registration opens at 7:30 am and closes 30 minutes before each race begins.

    Race Course

    Sunderbruch offers a familiar Midwest singletrack experience with a twist. In 2012 the trail system was expanded 1 mile to include large wooden berms, multiple bridges, and a "party deck" in the middle of the woods. The trails feature plenty of man made technical features, roots, leg burning climbs, and bone shaking downhills. The race course will be laid out and available for pre-riding late Saturday afternoon the day before the event.

    Course Maps

    This years course will be the same as last year. The course will be run in a counter-clockwise direction.
