This new course includes ALL the trails at Rope Mill Park!

Make plans to join us on May 27th for our newest event! This Fast+Furious 15 course features all the trails at Rope Mill Park and will begin along the concrete path to allow riders to space out before entering the singletrack portion of the course.

Riders will turn right at the bridge and complete Moore's Pass, Power House, Raceway and Turbine all in a clockwise direction. These trails are farily wide and allow for passing.

Riders will then return across the bridge and complete Explorer Loops 1, 2, and 3 counter-clockwise. The course returns via the singletrack trail that links Explorer to the parking lot, crosses the parking lot, then heads onto the Avalanche Trail where riders will proceed counter-clockwise on Avalance Trail Loops 1, 2, and 3 and then head back to the start/finish to complete the course.


You can never have too many berms!!

The categories for 2023 are age based and the same as we have used for the Blankets Creek Dirty 15 Mile Race. You can see full details and a list of categories on the ROPE MILL FAST+FURIOUS 15 WEBSITE.

This is everyone's favorite event where you can race as a solo or on a team. Pair up with your spouse or kids!

The opening bike loop will be 5.5 miles on the Mill Trails, followed by a 3.3 mile trail run on Explorer, and finally a 5.5 mile bike on the Avalanche Trails. The course covers all the trails at Rope Mill Park!

Solo, 2 and 3 person beginner/family team categories are available in the duathlon. We will be using traditional mountain bike race categories, as we have done in the past, to help alleviate congestion on the opening bike loop. The run is short enough that those who do not typically run still have plenty of time to start training!

All participants receive a super comfy t-shirt and those that register by October 20th also receive a commemorative swag item. Prizes and awards presented to the top 3 in each duathlon category. Post race snacks and drinks available.


We are also offering a separate 3.3 mile trail run on the Explorer Trails at this event for those who would prefer to just participate in a run.
