Mowdy Mustang Ranch, Coalgate, Oklahoma
Race Start: 8 a.m.

This is a 3hr mountain bike race at the amazing Mowdy Mustang Ranch.

Help celebrate a great American icon, the wild horses of America, the American Mustang. Mowdy Ranch was the second ecotourism ranch established in the United States by the Bureau of Land Management of the U.S. Department of the Interior to promote awareness and encourage support and adoption of America’s mustangs.  Millions of these wild horses once roamed the country, but horse numbers and range conditions often limit the land available for these horses. When their numbers get too great or range conditions deteriorate, the BLM is forced to relocate some of the horses to ranches like Mowdy Ranch where they are allowed to live and run free. Unfortunately, ranches willing to take these beautiful horses are few and limited. Your help is needed to insure the continued existence of the wild mustangs. These beautiful animals need and deserve our care and understanding. A portion of the proceeds Mowdy Ranch generates from this race will be used for the continued care and maintenance of the wild mustangs. Thanks for your help. We hope to see you at the ranch.

This race is a mountain bike race for solo riders or relay teams on a 12-mile single-track course consisting of two distinct 6-mile loops (Stallion & Pony). Riders will start by following a single-track course up & down the rocky hills to the north (Stallion Loop) and then into the heavily wooded creek bottoms and pastures of the south (Pony Loop). Riders try to log as many laps as possible by the 3hr cutoff, with only 1-member riding at a time. Relay teams can exchange mid-way after each section (first team member could ride Stallion Loop and 2nd team member could then ride Pony Loop). Stallion Loop is more technical and has elevation change while Pony Loop is faster and easier. Solo riders do both loops, and continue until the cutoff in the same order or until you have had enough. You must finish the race by 11:00 a.m. or 3hrs after the actual start time. If you do not have enough time to finish a loop, you shouldn’t start because it won’t count (bummer). You do not have to do the entire 12-mile course, because it is broken into 2 distinct loops (Stallion or Pony). The loops must be done in order though, Stallion first and then Pony (you cannot change the order of loops or do two loops of the same in a row). There will be a relay exchange staging area for each loop where the baton will change hands. There will be a short Lemans run (or walk) to help thin out the racers before jumping on your bikes and heading to the single-track trail on Stallion Loop.

*No pre-riding allowed other than Friday after 5:00 p.m.  Because the ranch is home to the wild mustangs, the horses must be gathered and placed in an adjacent pasture prior to the event. Your help and co-operation in making this gentle on the horses is appreciated.
