The 2017 JJF Fit Fest 4 Hour Mountain Bike race will be held on the mountain bike trails at the 2,300 acre beautiful Ann Springs Close Greenway. The majority of the race course will be held on super fun single track mountain bike trails connected by two short gravel roads. The course is raced in the clockwise direction. The start will be held on the gravel road the dissects the park.
The course is a 9.5 mile race starting with the Prairie Loop. At the midpoint of the Prairie Loop, participants will travel across the old road bridge, under the new road bridge and onto School Loop East in the clockwise direction. Participants will continue onto the Sugar Island Loop in the same clockwise direction. After existing the Sugar Island Loop, participants will continue on the short section of School Loop East to the Leroy Springs Recreation Complex. There, participants will take School Loop West, which starts with a really fun sweeping downhill section. Upon existing School Loop West participants will once again travel across the old road bridge and turn left onto the remaining section of the Prairie loop. After existing the Prairie Loop, participants will travel up the gravel road and turn right, crossing the small the levee for Stumpy Pond. Participants will continue to travel on the gravel road, with two-way traffic, until you reach the end of the 9.5 mile lap.
