Moose Run Time Trial This Saturday April 18, 2015

Moose Run Time Trial Saturday – April 18th!

Come on out and start the season off with one of our favorite races!  GREAT training for Bike for Women, Gold Nugget Triathlon and the Eagle River Tri!

We typically have over 100 racers at this event – where is everyone? This is a great training race for the Bike for Women, Gold Nugget Tri, Eagle River Tri and just a great early season race to get the legs back into racing mode!  Grab your friends and come on out Sunday!

Our favorite 10-mile race against the clock, but this time with a twist: we will race the “opposite” direction. Parking, staging, start, and finish will be at the Arctic Valley golf course and driving range parking areaCheck out the course map.

Added bonuses! Race on Saturday and you may just win a Free Tour of Anchorage entry ($100 value). We want to see lots of you there so we are sweetening the pot a bit, however you can’t win if you aren’t there! One lucky racer will win a 2015 Tour of Anchorage entry.
