Kids Cross-Country Races 9:30 - 10:30am
The Nelson and District Credit Union is proud to present the kids cross-country races for kids 2-12. We've got several different courses to suit different ages and abilities, resulting in smaller groups so everyone has a chance to have fun! And as always, the first 100 kids entering Fat Tire Fest events get a free t-shirt.
Cost: Free to NCC members! $5 kids memberships available on site. Register all weekend long and on-site until a half an hour before your start time. Check out here for loops and start times.
Kids Registration Page: Save time and print this off, fill it out and bring it to the mountain on Sunday.
Women's Enduro: 11am
We gotta change it up to keep it interesting! This year we will be sending the women off first for their ride. Choose from the Short or Long course (see below for description). Ladies, this is your chance to enjoy your ride and let the men feed the kids lunch!
