Junior Mountain Bike Camp:

We are excited to announce the Michigan Tech Athletics Department and Outdoor Adventure Program are partnering up to host a 5 day mountain bike camp for youth ages 13-20! Learn mountain bike skills, techniques, training methodology and racing tactics and strategies from some of the best mountain bike coaches in the country! New this year, live-in campers will stay in the MTU Wadsworth residence hall (the nicest on campus!). Commuter option still available for local campers. All camp prices include full-service dining 3 meals/day at our MTU residence hall as well as meals out at various mountain bike locations throughout the camp. Register now as this camp is limited to 24 campers!  

*Mountain Bike Camp participants will receive $20 race admission if you register by May 31, 2018. Please contact Tom Smith thjsmith@mtu.edu for this camp race entry price discount!


Trail Run Races:

New this year are trail running races that will feature over 90% single track on our Tech Trails and a fun but challenging point-to-point course! Come sport your trail running tread in the only single track trail running race on the Michigan Tech Trails!

*Please note construction at Houghton High School has impacted one of the ski trails in our 9/14/29 mi mountain bike courses. We've had to re-route the initial roll out for these three races and this is the updated course map. This will not effect the distance of each 9/14/29 mi mountain bike race.
