About this event:

Created by Lilias

The 9th annual Circumburke Mountain Bike and Trail Run Challenge is happening  on October 13th.


Registration is open!  So you might as well just sign up now!  Your registration gives you access to the once a year backcountry loop, tons of swag, and lunch.


The Circumburke Challenge starts at Burke Mtn Resort base lodge leading bikers and runners on a combination of singletrack and doubletrack halfway up Burke and over the back side to the newly developed Victory Hill Sector trail network.


And tradition dictates a new pint glass for each year commemorating the trek.


From there, the route continues around Burke Mtn on the Umpire Mtn side eventually finishing back at Burke Mtn Resort 26 miles later.


The hardiest of bikers will then continue around the course a second time for a 52 mile ride.

The Circumburke course is just like it sounds… a challenge.  For some, it’s an extremely demanding all out race pace experience.  And for some, it’s an extremely demanding stroll.  But everyone agrees that it is difficult AND a blast no matter how long it takes.


For those that choose to lollygaggle, there are 4 aid stations stocked with anything from hot coffee to grilled cheese sandwiches depending on what is donated and who your friendly aid station attendant may be…


At the finish line, Market Cafe will greet you with hot soup and delicious wraps, included in the race fee.  While KT house band Tritium Well plays music and Burke Mtn Resort serves draft beers.


Join us for the ride/run or help us make the fun by volunteering.
