Woods Mountain

Woods Mountain
1st Annual – June 13th, 2021

Pisgah National Forest, Marion N.C.

34.5 miles – 5489’+ Elevation


Woods Mountain is an annual MTB race that puts you in the backcountry of the Pisgah National Forest.  Rolling over rugged mining roads, classic Pisgah singletrack, cursing climbs and giggling descents, this course will test your skills and desire as you explore the intoxicating terrain of the Pisgah National Forest.  



*Since we are currently dealing with the Corona Virus and this is part of the Triple Crown MTB Series, we will use the 47 mile version of Dirt Diggler on September 19th, 2020 in the case we have to cancel the event. We have also extended a 75% refund up to 30 days before the event also.

Start Time: Packet pickup starts at 7:00 am. There will be a Race Meeting at the Start line at 8:50 am. Every racer must attend meeting. You must have your shuttled items ready by 8:45 am. Race start will begin promptly at 9:00 am.

Rest Stops/First Aid: There will be three fully-stocked rest stops on the course (Rest Stop #1 – Mile 8, Rest Stop #2 – Mile 21, Rest Stop #3 – Mile 29). The rest stops have food, CLIF products, Energy Drinks, and H₂O. We have a drop system organized so you can arrange to have your personal supplies at the rest stops. First Aid will be at the rest area and the Start/Finish area. Restroom facilities are also at the Start/Finish.
