Gold Rush Bike Rally
August 27 2017 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm$65
We are super excited to be sponsoring Adventure Fit’s second race of the year: The Boulder Gold Rush! If you liked Old Man Winter, you will love the Gold Rush, again offering both a cycling or running component, both with a very rewarding twist: GOLD NUGGETS.
There will over 100 gold-painted rocks which can be exchanged for awesome prizes like Lucky’s Market gift cards, a REEB bike frame, Pearl Izumi gift certificates, and many more. Nuggets will be distributed throughout the day so everybody has a chance to win!
The bike courses offer a phenomenal ride through Boulder County’s most scenic and historic gold mining past. Whether you choose the short or the long course, you’ll be treated to the best primitive roads, back county climbs, and views that our backyard has to offer. You’ll pass by abandoned gold and silver mines, and cruise through the quaint town of Gold Hill. There are 3 timed sections on the bike course, with the majority of the course being untimed. This allows you to ride with friends at your own pace without having to race up the big climbs. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, Adventure Fit will be waiting with cold beers, gourmet tacos, and lots of time for you to kick back, relax, and share your good times.
Long Course: 53.8 miles, 6,584′ elevation
Short Course: 33.1 miles, 4,622′ elevation
The venue is located in North Boulder Park, with packet pickup beginning at 7:00 am, and the long course race rolling out at 8:30 am. The short course race begins at 8:35.
Sports Garage will be on course providing support for all the racers. Can’t wait to see you out there!
