Wintergreen Tread & Trail Series

Mountain Bike Race & Trail Run Series

trail and tread logo

Please note: 

Due to lack of participation we are cancelling the Sunday MTB portion of the Trail Rodeo weekend. We will still host the Trail Run on Saturday and crown the Winners of the series at that time as well.

Race all you can! Join us for the Third Annual Wintergreen Tread & Trail Mountain Bike Race and Trail Run Series, sponsored by Bold Rock Hard Cider. Each race weekend, Memorial Day Weekend, Labor Day Weekend, and Columbus Day Weekend, will feature a mountain bike race and a trail run. Enter as many races as you want - mountain biking, trail running, or both! Each race will offer participants opportunities to score some valuable points. A King and Queen with the most points will be crowned after the final race. Who will rise to the challenge?

There will be no time for tough talk as our mountain terrain will be as formidable as your competition. Sick singletrack and lung bursting climbs will only be part of the challenge in order to conquer the Tread & Trail Series. Mountain bikes and your best trail running shoes will be your weapons of choice for conquering these wicked slopes and your competition. No time for sightseeing - your competition will be quick on your heels!  

The Wintergreen Trail & Tread Series is sponsored by Bold Rock Hard Cider, Blue Ridge Cyclery, Crozet Running, and Wintergreen Real Estate.

"Wintergreen is one of my favorite race courses. It's real mountain terrain and scenery. The trail has a lot of variety packed into a short lap - tricky downhills, fast downhills, lots of challenging yet rideable rocky stuff, long steady climbs and short steep climbs. And it's great for spectators because some of the trails are out in the open on the ski slopes."
- Adam Harnois, Men's Sport Racer
