Arrowhead 6/3 Hour MTB Race
COURSE DISTANCE: 9 miles
ELEVATION CHANGE: 800 feet
COURSE DIFFICULTY: 7 out of 10
Tucked along the southwestern edge of Lake Tobesofkee in Bibb County, the trails of Arrowhead Park are a hidden gem for mountain biking. It checks all the appropriate boxes:
Painful climbs? Check!
Scenic views? Check!
Picturesque creeks? Check!
Random picnic tables sprinkled along race course? Check!
You can expect a course approximately 9 miles in length with a little less than 800 feet of elevation change. However, when you’ve completed a lap, you will swear that you’ve climbed more. For those who think “Macon is flat,” this course definitely defies that logic. In fact, the members of our scouting party unanimously agreed that this is the hardest course in the series! In fact, we almost kept Dynamite 6/3 as the name for this race, because if you aren’t careful with your pacing, you’ll definitely blow up! Don’t say we didn’t warn you!Register Race Regulations Who's Registered?
