Firebird 50K & 25K MTB Races
New for 2022!
Firebird 25K- now you can choose between the full or short course.
A Colorado end-of-summer outdoor celebration! Come celebrate the beginning of fall in the mountains with a mountain bike challenge! An exciting weekend of festival fun and adventure on the trails near Eagle, Colorado. With the start/finish line right in the heart of Eagle friends and family can enjoy themselves while you ride this rugged mountain race. Enjoy a weekend of relaxing with a beer, hot meal, music and a massage at the recovery station. Join the runners at the Saturday night party!
Experience uphill grinds and beautiful singletrack. Both the 50K and 25K courses are a great test of stamina and give a culmination of summer training. With the combination of many short ups and downs and a couple big climbs, this event will definitely test your fitness. Racers will have three aid stations (one for the 25K) and will receive a finisher’s memento and age group awards.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Cycle Effect, a local non-profit with the mission to empower girls through mountain biking.
Our packet pickup and start/finish area will be well provided for by our incredible sponsor – Color Roasters.
In order to be environmentally friendly and cut down on the amount of trash we produce, we will not have cups at the aid stations. Please carry a water bottle on the course.
