The Trailhead, 1221 Theodore Wirth Pkwy

An awesome spectacle, our Fat Tire Sprints are a blast of fast fat biking fun! Grab a friend and join us in a fun night of racing at The Trailhead!

Participants will race on a 1 to 1.5k trail. The race is primarily on the skate deck, with some forays onto the single track. The course will be partially lit and there is always ambient light, and as such bike lights and/or headlamps are optional.

Racers compete individually during the Friday night Fate Tire Sprints. The Fat Tire Sprints have no qualification round; competitors go immediately into seeded heats of four to six racers. The top bikers from each heat advance to the next heat, culminating in the finals. All racers will be guaranteed a minimum of two heats, as those who don’t make the cut in the first round compete in the consolation bracket.
