Race #5. Held outside the quaint village of Elbert on the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, this venue harkens back to a time of windmills and cowboys. Intimate camping at the venue offers a well - peaceful, setting in which to crown the Series Champions. The 22 mile loop winds through low hills of Black Forest and Ponderosa Pine, which is sure to put a big ring grin on competitors faces as this private course is a real delight. The views of Pikes Peak and rolling prairie are memorable. Join us in the rustic dining hall for post race supper and Oskar Blues Awards Ceremony. The quiet, back in time feeling at the Ranch makes it a great opportunity to bring the family and enjoy the solitude in the woods.

This camping rocks!

Bring a sleeping bag, tent, RV, trailer, or whatever you got and we'll make sure you get a place to bed down.

There are mosquitoes in these woods - bring repellent! Keep Fido on a leash and pickup after him.
