Parry Sound Bikes presents Parry Sound's 3rd 8 hour MTB Race Relay, in partnership with Get Outdoors Parry Sound, at Georgian Nordic Ski Club.

    Route description:

    For those riders who participated in 2017, it is the same route for the 2018 Sun to Stars 8-Hour Race, which includes twisty/turny singletrack at the beginning of the Eagle (just the bits on the flat). The classic Rattlesnake experience is still in the race course, as is Weasel. Top riders may be able to clear the course in about 20 minutes, but most riders will be closer to 30 minutes per lap. Course length is 6.5km, with 80m climb per lap (feels like more, with multiple small climbs).

      If you don't have a team but would like to join one, simply show up on race day and we will do our best to match folks up. There is plenty of room for tents if teams prefer to bring their own shelter, and the Burrow will also be open.

        Race start is 2:00 pm and runs until 10:00 pm. Sunset occurs at about 7:15pm. Any rider on the course after 7:00 pm requires a headlight (handlebar or helmet mounted lights are permitted), a taillight, and an emergency backup light source

        Register as a solo rider, team of 2 or team of 4. Ride the 8km lap course for 8 hours to complete as many laps as possible.
