Outside Events presents Sunrise to Sunset in Winter Park, CO. The event is designed to offer recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to compete in a fun and rewarding 12-hour endurance race on a moderately technical off-road course. Taking place on the flowy trails at Philip S. Miller Park in Castle Rock, this amazing facility offers the perfect endurance mountain bike venue less than a mile from downtown Castle Rock. The playful 6.5-mile course is cut into the hills and drainages surrounding the park and offers ample viewing from the staging area for team members and spectators.
Participants can register as an Individual or Team. Creating a team requires a Team Captain, a team name, and a specific category. The Team Captain will complete the team registrants and invite them to join. Teams of four or five within specific categories will be racing against each other for the top three awards regardless of team makeup; male, female, or coed. Other goodies included in registration are timing with live tracking, great prize drawings, a commemorative t-shirt, refreshments throughout the race, and a post-race party with food, beer, and live music.
