The 4th annual (2013) Tracks n Treads 3.8 Mile Trail Run and Off-Road Biathlon will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 6. The run portion is mostly on rugged single track trail. The biathlon will feature an 8.5-mile bike course on the famous Gateway Off-Road Cycling (GORC) single-track mountain bike trails and a 3.8 mile trail run. Bike course will be altered to paved bike trails if wet conditions would damage the trails.
Custom Camelback insulated bottles to the first 150 registered.
Athletes can register for the 5K run only or biathlon as individuals or as part of two-person teams.
Tracks n Treads is sponsored by Metro Tri Club, an organization of triathletes, runners, cyclists and swimmers, most of whom live in the Metro East. The group, nicknamed Team Godzilla, also sponsors the grueling Pere Marquette Endurance Trail Run each year at Pere Marquette State Park.
"This is an exciting event that will be fun and memorable, and it brings those in the running and mountain biking community together for one event in a beautiful venue," says Tracks n Treads Race Director Robin Rongey, who also serves as vice president of Metro Tri Club.
