Black Bear Rampage

Black Bear Rampage

Date: Sunday, September 15th of 2024

Registration is open!


The Black Bear Rampage course is 40 (or 20) miles of the happiest singletrack that you have ever rolled. There are 5 awesome SAGs on the course & volunteers at every turn to keep racers hammering in the right direction.  Our medical response staff are ready for almost anything that might happen & the folks from the Ocoee Dam Deli have a long history of feeding us like we are family. The schwag this year might be the best ever with a new gear bag built by Americans on US soil!
