GROWLER KID’S RACES SATURDAY MORNING
The Original Meowler Kids races:
Calling all young mountain bikers from Striders on up that want to participate in the Gunnison Trails Growler weekend but just don’t quite have the legs for a full 32-mile lap. Here’s the scoop for the first annual “KIDS MEOWLER”…
Please meet us under the picnic table pavilion at the Hartman Rocks base area at 8:30 am on Saturday, May 27 for FREE REGISTRATION! Here you’ll get a number plate and sign a quick release of liability waiver. Don’t forget to bring snacks and a water bottle or hydration pack. Helmets and closed toed sneakers required, sunglasses and bike gloves are highly recommended.
The first race will go off at 9:30 for the Strider riders as well as those just transitioning to pedals. For this one lap/short course race, we ask that parents accompany their child with no brakes or those who are still a little shaky. There may be a “mandatory dismount” to get down one short hill. Suggested age range for this race is 3-5 years old.
The second race start will be at 9:45 am and will also be on the short course. This race is intended for kids that are confident pedaling and more experienced on two wheels. This race will be approximately 15 minutes long. The suggested age range for this race is 5-7 years old.
The third race start will be at 10:10 am and will also be run on the short course. This race will be for even faster kids with more proficient bike handling skill and fitness. This race will be approximately 20 minutes long. The suggested age range for this race is 7-9 years old.
The final race start will be at 10:20 am and will be on a longer course for our oldest and fastest kids. Riders registering for this race must have solid descending skills and endurance for longer laps with more climbing. This race will be approximately 30 minutes long. The suggested age range for this race is 9 and up.
All finishers will get a medal and we will have healthy post-race refreshments at the start/finish area. Please contact Amy at amy@CrestedButteDevo.com with any questions.
