Horses Wild Joker Dare ~ 1Hr 4Hr 7Hr ~ Trail Run MTB Dua

September 24, 2022

This new event of RRA is a MTB and/or Trail Run on the newly developed mountain bike trails out in Barnes Canyon Trailhead just a few miles outside of Caliente, Nv.
This trail race will offer hours of running or mountain biking or how about both, why not! You’ll want to sign up and come hang out with me, race director Kristal!! Always Fun To Be Had!!   

How much elevation and miles can you get done in allotted time you choose; 1 hr, 4 hrs, or 7 hrs.  Elevation gain, challenging, scenic and very isolated from the world except you might get the chance to see the Union Pacific train track on by 🙂
