Kids Cross-Country Races 9:30 - 10:30am
The Nelson and District Credit Union and FortisBC are 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.

Up, Down, All Around Enduro (Sane event) starts at 11 am
The teams are ready!
We are shaking things up this year at Fat Tire Fest! Time for something NEW! And with the completion of Upper Bottom's and the opportunities that offers, how could we not? This year we have combined the XC and DH into one event - there is a chance for everyone to excel at what they do best!
For the Sane event, participants will climb to the top of Bottom's Up and then head down Lefty. The climb will be timed to the intersection of Bottom's Up and Lefty, and then riders can advance to the top of Lefty will a bit more ease. Then each rider will be timed down Lefty. For those that aren't climbers, you don't have to take a time for the climb. Parents may accompany their children for this event.
There are prizes for fastest Up, fastest Down and fastest All Around in a variety of categories. See the Event Package here (soon) for all the details.
Cost is $15 per person; $10 for Under 19 participating in the Sane event; $20 for those adults that want to try their hand at doing both Sane and Insane. See the registration page for more information on how to save on multiple events! Must be an NCC member to participate. Memberships and weekend memberships (for out of towners) can be purchased on site. Registration available at all events all weekend long and on-site starting at 8am. Registration closes at 10:30 am on Sunday.
