How to Register:
Online & mail in registration for the Solstice Chase will open by Wednesday, November 6
Register early for a discounted rate, and to ensure you get in, as the event will be limited to 300 racers (total racers for both event distances). Fees are the same for both race distances.
Pre-Register by 12/11/2013: $35
Register after 12/12/2013: $45
Only true \"Fat Bikes\" are allowed in the Solstice Chase. This means your bicycle must have tires that are at least 3.8\" wide, and we recommend running under 10 psi of air pressure. Narrower tires damage the groomed ski trails - while a portion of this course will be open for Fat Biking throughout the Winter, some of it is a XC Ski trail and only open to Fat Bikers on event day. To learn more about Fat Bikes or for a free demo, contact the folks at Cyclova XC.
The 25k race will be 1 lap, while the 50k event will be a 2 lap race. The course will feature the best of the challenging river valley terrain at the epic 1600 acre private nature preserve known as Big Rock Creek Retreat. If you look up from your handlebars, the scenery will take your breath away - as will many of the climbs! The descents will have you hooting and hollering, with an ear to ear grin. You will love this course, and find yourself planning Fat Biking trips back to Big Rock Creek Farm, The Woolly MTB Trails, and the St. Croix Falls area in general!
Proceeds from the Solstice Chase will be used to further develop the great trails in the St. Croix Falls area.
