Here are the details:
The race consists of 4, 6 and 12-hour options where you race as many laps as you can in the selected amount of time. One lap will be approximately 12 miles.
Race Schedule will begin with all categories starting at 8:00 AM. There will be a mass start and lead out before entering the course. The last lap must be completed by 12:00 pm for 4-hour category, 2:00 pm for 6-hour category and 8:00 pm for 12-hour category.
Registration will open at 6:00 AM on the day of the race. Registration will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the race and a race meeting will be held to cover any last-minute details at 7:45 AM.
Event Area layout will be provided by Bearded Women Racing no later than one week before the race. The course will be available to pre-ride at least 2 days before the race. The Bearded Beatdown would not be possible without our sponsors.
Cedar Hill State Park has granted us permission to host this event. Participants, spectators, and sponsors are asked to leave the area in better shape than they found it. Bearded Women Racing is a private club organization which works hard to maintain our relationship with the park. Please don’t spoil it for the rest of us!
Awards will be given out to the top 3 in the 4, 6 and 12- hour categories. Starting time for the ceremony is approximately 30 minutes after the end of each category race. Awards may include trophies, medals, cash, or swag. Standby for future announcements!
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be included in your registration while supplies last. 1 meal ticket for 4-hour, 2 meal tickets for 6-hour participants and 3 meal tickets for 12-hour participants. Meals will be available to spectators for a donation. Tickets will be issued to you at the registration check-in.

OFFICIAL BEARDED WOMEN RACING RAINOUT POLICY - All of our racing events are created with the primary intent of raising revenue in support of our mission to promote the sport of cycling on dirt, camaraderie, competition, and good times. Each racing event requires substantial investment and hundreds of hours in volunteer commitment. For these reasons and the financial viability of our club, we cannot offer refunds or “event comps” due to acts of God. In the event of cancellation, BWR will attempt to offer a make-up race on an established “rain date”. However, if this option is not available, we SINCERELY thank you for your donation as our organization could not function without your support.
Disclaimer - This race IS the RAIN OUT date and will be the last attempt to put this race on in 2018.
