Big Elk Off-Road… from the creators of Ramsey's Revenge!
The event will be held on the Gallaher Road event grounds behind Big Elk Chapel, and will include approximately 7 miles of Fair Hill's finest singletrack. This year Big Elk will be the Mid-Atlantic Super Series' finals race. So come out and finish up the season with us on the fast and fun trails of Fair Hill!

The Course
The course is fast and flowy, without a lot of technical challenge. It consists of a variety of terrain including tight twisty singletrack, wide open doubletrack, roots, few rocks, short punchy climbs, fast descents as well as some gravel and field trails mixed in that will speed things up and give ample opporunities for passing. It's a great cross-section of the variety east coast riding has to offer!

We hope you'll join us for a fun day on trails at one of the Mid-Atlantic's most unique riding destinations!

Race is light rain or shine onlyNO REFUNDS

Making a decision whether to hold or postpone an event due to rain is the most difficult/stressful part of a race promoter's job, and postponing to a rain date has implications that can easily sink an event. We want to be able to continue to hold this event going forward, so in order to do so we have adopted a 'No Refunds' policy. Please understand we did not make this decision lightly, and that it was made in the best interests of the not only the event and its organizers, but the participants as well. If it does rain on the scheduled date, we will move the event to Sunday August 26th.
