The Wildcat Mountain-Bike Marathon (25 & 50-mile races) will take place on the Cedar Glades and Northwoods Trails for tons of fast single track, machine cut trail, loads of speed, and tough climbs to make sure your appetite is fulfilled by the end of the day! Following the Marathon race on March 16, we will have a dual-slalom course set up on the hillside and as the sun sets on the horizon we will race under the lights for some fun head-to-head racing until there is only one winner in each category.

Following the Wildcat Marathon will be the Northwoods Enduro taking place at Cedar Glades and Northwoods Trails on March 17 for a challenging yet fun day of timed stage racing on courses that range from a few of our favorite enduro lines as well as our event only lines! The course this year will be approximately 18 miles with 6-7 timed stages - the official map will be emailed to all registered participants following online reg closing and prior to practice day to keep an even playing field.

Each day will start and finish at Cedar Glades park with the jumps, pumptrack, disc golf course and playground remaining open to the public the duration of the weekend. Each race will conclude with a free meal to participants and an epic awards ceremony. Friends, family and spectators are all welcome to join us!
