The 60-Mile and 33-Mile Courses include McPhee Overlook Trail, an epic fun flowing singletrack that hugs the cliffs above McPhee Reservoir with spectacular views of the lake.

Racers can choose from a variety of challenges based on their speed, fitness and technical ability.   Whether you are up for the 50-mile endurance challenge, interested in any of the traditional fast paced x-country classes or just have a personal goal to finish at your own pace, there is an option for you.

Every category offers an unbeatable experience on fast and flowing singletrack.  The terrain is ideally suited for high speeds and easy passing.  The routes undulate through ponderosa pines and up and over canyons through aspen groves.

While this is a grass-roots hometown event there is no shortage of stiff competition.  In past years you would have lined up next to John Tomac, Travis Brown and a host of other elite athletes that come to train in the Colorado altitude.

Start and Finish line is in center of town at Flanders Park (4th Street & Central). We work with the local Sheriff's Office and Course Marshals to guide you up and around the Boggy Draw Trail System once the race starts. Courses are flagged, and you will follow the flag color of your racing bib.

We will have a beer garden, a race emcee, some retail and food vendors, and music through the morning and afternoon. Awards will begin around noon, depending on when we have most of 1st/2nd/3rd place racers in. 

Race is sanctioned by USA Cycling, and chip-timed by Rocky Mountain Timing.

COVID-19 measures may be in place depending upon restrictions, and if so, we will start in waves of 10 riders at-a-time, with 1-minute intervals between waves.

We are not anticipating cancelling the race for any reason (we raced even during the COVID restrictions of 2020), but if we do, we will refund the entire amount of the entry fee. But we're not cancelling!

The Race For Change

This race is presented by the Rotary Club of Dolores, a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers, where all proceeds go to help the community with children's programs, scholarships, and youth leadership opportunities.  Change starts with educating and supporting our youth, and the Rotary Club believes in "Service Above Self" and having fun while doing it! Even if you can't participate in this years race, please help by giving a donation or becoming a sponsor, entirely tax deductible, with grateful appreciation of all that you can do to make a difference!
