September 9/15 15:44 pm - National MTB Marathon Championships This Weekend

Posted by Editoress on 09/9/15

A spectacular weekend of racing will be offered at Horseshoe Resort, which hosts the 2015 Canadian Mountain Bike Marathon Championships on September 13th.

Mountain bikers will go shoulder to shoulder in some of the most difficult Ontario trails at Horseshoe Resort. Organized by Superfly Racing, racers on the start line will be treated to a top event.

"We are VERY excited for this course - using all of Horseshoe’s trails, unearthing classic trails at the Heights of Horseshoe, and tapping into section of the Copeland that we seek permission to use, will put riders through a myriad of incredible trails! Get a room at Horseshoe and have a full weekend of fun," said organizer Sean Ruppel.

The race will be disputed on two laps of a course approximately 35 km in length, which will offer top distance riders a myriad of tough but fun trails. The lap will also utilize parts of the nearby Copeland Forest. Some old trails behind Heights will be unearthed, and every piece of fun trail on the resort side is being used.

Organizers are also opening up old "secret" trails from Chico Racing and Pulse Racing's historical Heights of Horseshoe Ontario/Canada Cups, offering endless possibilities.

Registration closes tonight (Wednesday, September 9th) at midnight Eastern Time. The Technical Guide is also available.
