2023 Friday Night Race Series

>> Weekly Drop-In Registration​ <<

Drop-in registration opens at 8am on race day via the link above and closes at 3pm or when all spots are filled, whichever happens first. The number of available spots may vary week to week. First-come, first-served.

Six weeks of downhill racing, individual and team-style competition, weekly prizes, and plenty of fun to be had.

Here’s what you need to know for 2023:

  • Registration will open on June 1st. There are 75 racer spots in the series, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Registration will close on June 23rd or when all spots are filled, whichever happens first.
  • There is a $150 registration fee for the full, six-week series.
  • All racers will receive one timed run on each week’s race trail. Top 10 finishers in each category will win points for their team in the overall series standings.
  • New this year: we will be racing on three different trails, hitting each trail twice over the six week series. Not only will you be competing against your fellow racers, you’ll also be racing against yourself! Team points and additional prizing will be awarded to racers who improve on their original time.
  • Trail selections have not been finalized, but you can expect races to be held on a range of intermediate and advanced terrain.
  • DROP IN RACERS: A limited number of $20 drop in spots will be released each Friday at 8am. Drop-in registration will be available online only on a first-come, first serve basis.

4th place 50 points
5th place 45 points
6th place 40 points
