Bear Creek XC Challenge

The Bear Creek XC Challenge was home of the 2013 & 2014 Mountain Bike National Championships. This cross country race takes place on the best trails Bear Creek has to offer. The event is rain or shine but will be cancelled in the case of severe thunderstorms.
Join us on Sunday, June 6, 2021 for a day full of racing fun!
Race Day:
Race starts at 9AM
Pre-Reg Check in opens at 7 AM
Race Course:
We will be running a different course from previous years. The main change is no downhill switchbacks! Now, most people won't complain about this change but for those that love the switchbacks, please try and understand that this is a high crash area and in the interest and concern for the safety of the riders and for our medical staff that deals with the cuts, abrasions and other injuries that can come from that area, we would prefer to avoid that all together.
Race Times:
Pro/Cat 1 - 9AM
Cat 2 - 12PM
Cat 3 & First Timers - 2PM

Registration:MASS logo
$41 pre-registered
$26 Juniors
*All people that pre-register will go to a waiting list. Don't worry, you are registered for the race. This is only in the remote chance that the state downgrades us from the green phase and we are not allowed to host the race. Again, we do not anticipate this happening but hopefully this makes everyone feel more at ease pre-registering. We will move all riders from the waiting list to the racer list Friday, 6/4 at 10 AM. Your credit card will not be billed until you are moved to the race list. 
**There will be no day-of registration. This is solely due to safety concerns for all parties. This allows for less person-to-person contact and less crowding in the packet pick-up area.
