This Event Took Place Sat. Sep 3, 2022

The Mountwood Challenge 10 mile and 5k course take place in the 2600 acre Mountwood Park, 12 miles east of Parkersburg, WV. This scenic, fast-running course consists entirely of established single-track trails traversing the forested hills surrounding a 50 acre lake. This 46-mile trail system has been built and meticulously maintained over the last 20 years by the River Valley Mountain Bike Association. The purpose-built stacked loop system is very runnable, with long, steady grades, and few of the rocky/ rooty technical sections that one tends to expect with West Virginia single track. The start/ finish lines are located in the marina parking lot, approximately ½ mile from State Rt. 50.

The 10 Mile course has a 4 hour time limit. Any participant who make not make the time limit at the half way point may be redirected to finish line.

Race day registration and bib/shirt pick up will be at Carson Station (just past the Marina ), 6:30am-7:30am.

ALL proceeds from the race will go back to the park for park maintenance.


Awards will be given as follows :

ALL finishers of either race will receive a finishers medal. That said I will order a limited quantity - I can not anticipate race week or race day signs ups. Orders for awards (and shirts) will go out by August 22- any sign ups after that date are unfortunately not guaranteed medals or a shirt .

Overall awards will go to 1st F/M in each race.
5k will have run/walk.

F/M 0-14 (this age group is 5k only)
,14-19,20-29 etc….


Sign ups after Aug 22 are not guaranteed a shirt.
