The 2023 Sunset Races are kids-only mountain bike races the evening before the NICA races at Spring Hill Park on September 9, and at Centennial Park in Fayetteville on November 4.
6-8 year olds will do 1 loop, and the 9-11 year olds will do two loops. We respectfully ask that those racing NICA the next day not participate.
Cost is $25 for one race or $40 for both.
Pre-ride is available from 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm. Every rider must be supervised by an adult parent, coach, or guardian during pre-ride.
Volunteers are needed! Check in with Kyla at the registration tent.
