Our 2018 ARMCA D23 Enduro race will be held on August 25th – 26th. We’ll be basing the Enduro out of the Stompin’ Grounds campground, 3.6 miles north of Akeley, MN on highway 64. Look for the blue Stompin’ Grounds signs as well as Orange arrows. This is where we’ll have registration for the Youth and Adult races.
The Paul Bunyan Forest Riders have been hard at work cleaning trails for the event this year. The Enduro will be held on the West side of Hwy 64 which hasn’t been raced since 2014. The event will be a restart format with resets between each test. There are multiple sections of the race course that use “Special Use” trails which are only open for the Enduro and the Fall Trail Ride. So, here’s your chance to ride them. Race start and camping is at the Stompin Grounds campground. The Stompin Grounds will have an All-You-Can-Eat spaghetti dinner at the bar Saturday night from 5pm – 8pm. So, there’s no need to do your own cooking. The schedule for the weekend is as follows:
Sign up: At Stompin Grounds, starting at 12:30. Look for signs or check in the restaurant.
Micro/Macro – 2:00pm
The Micro/Macro course is approximately 2 miles and will start just north of the Stompin Grounds. The Parking/Staging area is at the Stompin Grounds. Riders will complete laps until the end of the event.
Premier, PeeWee & Girls – 4:30 pm
The course is approximately 12 miles and will run similar to a Sprint Enduro. The 12-mile course will have 3 legs, where each rider is timed to the second through each leg. Times for all 3 legs will be added together for the rider’s total score. The lowest score wins. The start and finish is at the Martineau trailhead with Staging/Parking at the trailhead as well. Parents can see their kids at the start, at the 2nd check (after leg 1) and at the finish line.
The AA, A, B and C classes will race on Sunday August 26th. The course for AA, A and B will be approximately 50 ground miles, divided into 5 tests. The C class course will be approximately 42 miles divided into 4 tests. The race start will be at the Stompin Grounds, and both gas stops will be at the Martineau Trailhead north on Hwy 64 of the Stompin Grounds. There will be a gas trailer at the Stompin Grounds that can take your gas can up to the Trailhead. The longest leg without a gas stop will be 25 miles.
