The Gudrun is a premiere mountain biking event and festival in Arkansas and the country showing how far Arkansas has come in recent years with mountain biking development with the state has become a prime bike destination. The event tkes place in Hot Sprigns national park and more specifically in the Northwood Trials system which is comprised of 26 miles of world class moutnain bike trials and voted the best in Arkansas. Running from Friday, November 12, and finishing on Sunday the 14th, there is a vibrant mix of bike races, fun runs, bike expos, food, drinks, music, and fun for kids and the entire family. A wonderful attribute to this festival is the large range of categories in the mountain bike categories so every level and age is supported and welcomed to ride their bikes. There are two main events with the first being the Gudrun Enduro which is a 15-mile enduro race with multiple categories all with prizes. Being even more inclusive there is also a compressed enduro race of 8 miles as well. The other main mountain bike race is called the ‘Attila the Hun XC’ and is of course a cross country race with nearly every category imaginable to cater to every level of rider. The Junior and Category 3 race is 6 miles and the top end category 1 is 19 miles with varying lengths in the middle of those two. 2020 brought nearly 600 sign-ups combined for the Enduro, XC, and fun runs in a Covid Heavy time so 2021 can only be bigger! The stunning North Wood Trails seems to be an extremely positive trend in Mountain biking with Arkansas and the Güdrun – Northwoods MTB Festival being at the heart of this. A premiere event surely on a path to only get bigger and better and something worth traveling to.
