New Race for 2019!

Due to permitting issues (and a challenging history of muddy trails), the Mystic Race has been discontinued. However, it has been reborn as the Moser Shake n’ Bake – a better-than-before version of the race that takes place in the same scenic Gallatin National Forest, incorporates some of the same trails  (as well as lots of new ones), and promises the same great single-track vibe! Join us on July 20th!
