Hosted by the Copper Harbor Trails Club, the 30th Annual Copper Harbor Trails Fest takes place September 1 - September 3, 2023 in Copper Harbor, MI. The annual Labor Day Weekend event features races, music, beer, and good times on Saturday and Sunday! This all-ages event has something for everyone, whether you're a cross-country lover, blazing-fast downhiller, enduro expert, sure-footed trail runner, or aspiring young ripper. Let the good times roll with the best dang weekend of the summer!

Saturday brings our classic XC mountain bike race in the morning, split into long and short depending on your appetite for pedaling. Later in the afternoon we kick off our Downhill race on Overflow, the biggest baddest trail you ever did see.  Shortly after that our young riders show us what they've got in their quest for pint-sized glory. We wrap it up in the park downtown with music, tasty food, and beverages from local and regional brewers.

Sunday pics up where we left off with a rugged 10k Trail Run that will have you wondering if you should have worn hiking boots instead of running shoes.  Later in the morning we send it with our Enduro race, split between Beginner, Sport, and Expert classes.  Stick around for the music and food scene into the evening.  It all culminates with the drawing of winners for our summer raffle and crowning of the King & Queen of the Mountain and Beast Mode Champions.  Think you'll win big this year?

The Expert and Sport-class Enduro and Downhill race are part of the Lake Superior Gravity Series.

Do you have what it takes to be the King or Queen of the Mountain?  The top male and female competitors who compete in all three of the main events (Long XC, Expert Enduro, and Downhill) will take home the top prize for the weekend.  Even if you're not planning on aiming for the podium, each event added gets you a $20 discount.  The more you race the more you save!  And for the crazies who want to do the three biking events AND the 10k Trail Run... you'll also become eligible for the BEAST MODE award!  Test your mettle and make a run for the top!

Race times are approximate and may change as the event draws nearer.  Check the Trails Fest event page on our website for the most up-to-date participant schedule and info packet.
