The town of Eagle is currently cleared for gatherings of up to 175 people and we will begin letting people off the waitlist on July 15th.
Local time: 1:23 PM
With the current regulations and number of participants registered and on the waitlist, we are expecting everyone will be able to race. However, there is always the possibility that as restrictions change we may have to cap the number of entrants. If this becomes the case, we will be using the following criteria on a first come, first served basis that will be determined by the date your Mountain RATS registration was received.
1. Racers who transferred from Desert RATS Trail Running Festival, Rabbit Valley Half and Desert RATS Classic before May 1st
2. Racers who registered for Mountain RATS with waitlist status (in the event that the races have to be postponed to 2021 we will allow the 85% deferral option as stated in our refund policy on UltraSignup)
3. Racers who transferred from other races May 1st or after.
Come celebrate fall in the mountains with a mountain bike challenge! An exciting weekend of festival fun and adventure on the trails near Eagle, Colorado.

Our packet pickup and start/finish area will be well provided for by our incredible sponsor – Color Roasters.
In order to be environmentally friendly and cut down on the amount of trash we produce, we will not have cups at the aid stations. Please carry a water bottle on the course.
