Race #1 – Magic Mania


Magic Mania 2017! A race to remember for sure! Extreme weather became a factor for the ladies race in the afternoon. Video was dedicated to the ladies who endured cold and rainy weather and still came in smiling.

How fun was that Video!

Thank you Ray Anderson for that incredible video! We are excited to get the race season started at Magic Mountain (24-25 August 2018). This is a very fun venue with great beautiful camping in the trees. Our camping map is below.

***Water access will be limited this year as the well we have used in the past has been contaminated. We ask everyone to help the team and pack 3-6 gallons of drinking water.
