QUARRY MOUNTAIN QUEST
Quarry Mountain Quest was first introduced in 2019. It was a fun 6-hour adventure race on the mountains surrounding Steamboat Springs. In 2022, this event will be a run/bike event with navigation.
Recently, we received notification that BLM cannot approve the entire race course. Thus the course must take place on 1 trail. While this will not be the course I envisioned with several points off trail, I have planned a few creative options that should make it fun. If this still sounds interesting to you, please sign up and join us on race day!
All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
Expect communications for this race to start a few months before race day, receiving the final communication about 1 week prior to race start.
If the race fills to capacity several months prior to the race date, please email the race director to put your team on the waiting list. Often the last two weeks prior to the race there are numerous cancellations. Your team may get a spot at the last minute.
This race is being permitted by the Bureau of Land Management and Routt County. We appreciate all the work they are doing to help us have a race at this location.
This race will be held in the mountains overlooking Steamboat Springs, CO.
Racers will navigate the unmarked course by hiking/trekking and mountain biking (dirt road/trail).
