  • Equal Pay for Women & Men
  • Single speed payouts for men & women
  • Fat Bike categories
  • 6 & 12-hour race options

THE RACE:

A 24-hour mountain bike race that can me done solo or on a team of up to 8 people. This is a 10(+-) mile course. Teams try to log as many laps as possible, with only 1 member riding at a time. The team or solo rider with the most laps in the 24 hour time period wins.

***New this year we are adding a 6-hour race and a 12-hour race. There will be a staggered start based on your  race (see start schedule below) and all racers will finish at noon on Sunday.

Short Course Description: A 10+- mile loop, 80% single track and 20% jeep road with several creek crossings. The single track winds through oak and pine groves combining quick down hills and technical sections. The course is marked with arrows for day riding, reflective tape for night riding.

Long Course Description: RHR provides you with steep climbs, tight, fast single-track and fast downhills. From the start, RHR will let you know just how good of a climber you are (or aren’t) thanks to the multiple steep climbs of ‘Fat Chuck’s Demise’. If you don’t make it, don’t feel bad – just lay down next to Chuck’s headstone and admit defeat. Next comes a fast winding trail called ‘Karaway’ that leads to ‘Off the Lip’, a parade of whoop-dee-doo’s that wind in and out of a dry creek bed. 'Off the Lip’ will put a huge smile on your face. This year we will include Frontal Lobotomy. After that, you hit the service road for a very short stretch until you reach Water Station 2 and on to ‘Longhorn Loop’. ‘Then it is on to some nice stretches of single-track, 'Miracle Mile', and towards the end is ‘Black Trac’, described as the grand finale of RHR, and rightfully so. Imagine the best of RHR all at once. Right before you think it’s all over you come to ‘The Wall’ – think whoop-dee-doo on crack.

REFUND POLICY:

No refunds under any circumstances.  Wait!  Well maybe.  We at Terra Firma understand that things change, sometimes out of your control and we never want to rip anyone off.  But please understand that we make a considerable investment in shirts, awards, dumpsters, porta potties, land use fees and a host of other expenses to put a race on.  We know your one fee doesn’t effect this number, but if we don’t have a policy and stick to it, where do we ever draw the line?

We think we’ve come up with a pretty liberal policy and hope you agree:

  • Cancellations greater than 21 days prior to the event will receive a 90% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
  • Cancellations within 15-21 days prior to the event will receive a 50% refund or 100% credit to another race within a year.
  • Cancellations within 8-14 days prior to the event will not receive a refund but may receive a 50% credittowards another race in the same year.
  • Cancellations within the last 7 days prior to the event are not eligible for any refund or credit because we’ve already spent your money.
  • Alterations to the course, start time, disciplines and venue (to within a reasonable distance) are notgrounds for a refund/credit, nor is plain ol’ bad weather.
