Emerald Mountain Epic

  • 2673 Jacob Cir #1, Steamboat Springs, CO, 80487
  • Overview

    The Emerald Mountain Epic presented by Hard Headed attracts some of the nation's best mountain bike and trail running racers, while still offering incredible opportunities for athletes of all skill levels to test their meddle. Our race is a uniquely rewarding and challenging experience in that it is 90% singletrack with major elevation gains.

    To minimize the impacts on the Emerald Mountain trail system, our past permits have only allowed for 500 racers on the start line each day. While our total field is limited to 500 racers per day, there will be no specific limit placed on individual categories.
