The Rivers Edge Mountain Bike Marathon is the second race in the Turn & Burn series and will take place in the beautiful Uwharrie National Forest. The race will consist of five laps around a 10 mile loop of the Wood Run Trail System. These are awesome single track trails, which have recently been re-worked and had several new extensions added. We plan to fire up the grill after the race and cook hot dogs and hamburgers and have many great sides including pasta salad, slaw, beans, all of the fixins’ and ice cold beer!

Don’t forget about….

The Turn & Burn Race Series: This is a three race endurance series, where riders accrue points in certain categories and have a chance to win some cash!

Battle of the Carolina’s: The area of either North or South Carolina that has the fastest mountain bikers will be awarded a trophy that will be displayed in a local bike shop, until the following year!
