Grizzly Peak Turn, Pedal, & Burn - CANCELLED

April 16, 2016

Update, March 20: Due to a low snowpack and conditions on the mountain that we expect to deteriorate quickly following our closing day, we have chosen to cancel this year’s Turn, Pedal, & Burn. We will be issuing refunds to those who have already registered, and we look forward to hosting this fun event next year. 
It’s fun, it's fast, and it's all downhill!  This event is in its 6th year running and you can expect the same carnival atmosphere (costumes encouraged), with good times and great people. 
 
This three-part drag race into Red Lodge, Montana from the top of Red Lodge Mountain is our own unique version of adventure racing. The event begins with some fast downhill skiing or snowboarding turns as you rip down Lazy M, dropping 2,000 vertical feet to the base area of Red Lodge Mountain. Click out of your boards and into your pedals and crank for town on 6 miles of twisting dirt road and speedy pavement. As you glide into town, you'll drop your bike to embark on the burn - a 1.75 mile run into downtown Red Lodge. Cross the finish line and we'll hand you a free beer while you enjoy the post-race party. 
This race is open to solo racers and three racer relay teams with coed, male, and female divisions. 
Registation is availabe via IMATHLETE.
 
Online registration closes on April 13, 2016 and is limited to the first 350 people to register.
