Run, Bike and Shoot Park City's Trails with Powdr Shot
— Posted by Park City on July 11, 2013
It’s called Powdr Shot, a summer biathlon series that's turning the traditional summer trail race on its ear with stops at our sister resorts across North America – and next weekend it’s our turn to host.
Powdr Shot mountain bike competitors concentrate at a shooting station.
Powdr Shot takes the shooting portion of the traditional biathlon and combines it with either trail running (Saturday, Jul 20) or mountain biking (Sunday, Jul 21). Separate running and biking courses are designed for beginners, intermediates and experts – and no, you don't have to be a sharp shooter (or have any shooting experience at all) to sign up. In fact, you don't even need a gun - we're providing them!
Bikers can race either a 6, 8 or 10 mile course.
Whether you're a Weekend Warrior looking to challenge yourself, or a more easy-going adventurer up for tackling a whole new kind of race, you're welcome at Powder Shot.
Best of all, race proceeds go directly toward maintaining clean, healthy and sustainable forests in the Park City area by removing standing dead and opening forests to new growth, replanting, and responsibly using standing dead.
Racing begins at 9 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday at Gorgoza Park (take the Jeremy Ranch Exit #141 off I-80 to 3863 West Kilby Rd, Park City).
