We have very exciting news for this year’s event: the 2011 Rivers Edge Mountain Bike Marathon is going to change venues! We are going to hold the 2011 event at the Wood Run Trail System in the Uwharrie National Forest. The race will consist of five laps around a 10 mile loop of single track trails. For those of you who plan to make their way to the Uwharrie National Forest, we are going to fire up the grill after the race and cook hot dogs and hamburgers and have many great sides including pasta salad, slaw, beans, all of the fixins and ice cold beer!As many of you are aware, hurricane Irene is lurking out in the Atlantic and heading our direction. Many of the forecasters are predicting this storm to hit the Carolinas on Friday night or Saturday, possibly as a Category 3 hurricane. We have spoken with the Forest Service about an alternate date for the event and if we postpone the race due to the hurricane, we will move the event to Saturday, September 10. We plan to make the call late Thursday or first thing Friday morning.
