Fat Fest Relays 2018 is cancelled due to course conditions as a result of weather. :(

The large amounts of melting snow, the warmer temperatures and the excessive rain has led us to have to cancel Fat Fest 2018. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of the venues we use and the weather has unfortunately given us a triple whammy. We, along with consultation from Binder Park Golf Course management, have determined that riding on the course given the current conditions would cause excessive damage to the grounds.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause. We know we are truly disappointed with you.


We have set it up so that each team member can register themselves individually. No more waiting for your friends to pay you back! Please make sure EACH member of your team registers.


Celebrate the End of Winter with the Trek Bicycle Store, your favorite local bike shop, and ride the winter adventure trail at Binder Park Golf Course's Winter Park! With two great event options, plus a kids event, there is something or everyone! Grab some food and drink, have some old fashioned sledding fun and warm up by the bonfire. Great giveaways and prizes!

For Fat Fest Relays Beginners, grab two of your closest friends and get ready for a fun adventure on bike. Each team member will complete a 1.5 mile loop by bike with an obstacle or two that may slow you down. Riders will be offered a shot-cut (no, it's not a spellng error) where you can cut out some of the course by drinking a shot of our choosing. (Must be 21 or over to participate in the shot-cut.) Teams of 2 may participate with one rider riding the course two times for a total of 3 laps around the course. 2.8"  width or larger tires required. 

The Fat Fest One-Hour Timed Relays are for those who like to be challanged. Compete solo or with a team of two or three and compete to complete as many laps as possible in the one-hour time frame. The shot-cut will not be available in the one-hour timed relay. 2.8" tire width or larger required. 

The Fat Fest Relays are like no other race you have done before. The winners may not be celebrated, the losers might win prizes, or maybe the middle of the pack will bring home the gold. Regardless of your place or time, there will be LOTS of giveaways/prizes for participants. The ultimate goal of Fat Fest Relays: having fun, staying active and enjoying winter and celebrating fat bikes!
