The MAC – In Classic Form!

We will be back on the classic, iconic course.  And it’s going to be EPIC.

Big climbs, steep scrambles, and high altitude views – we know you expect nothing less from The MAC.

5K – This race is fun, challenging, and achievable for all ages and ability levels.

15K – Be forewarned, this race will push you to your limits!  In true mountain race format there will be high elevation, steep climbs, questionable footing…oh, and did I mention it’s all in grizz country?

What you get:

Serious bragging rights
Some rad MAC Schwag
Post-race food
Melvin Brewing Beer (and other beverages)

Due to the sustainability of the traditional course, we will likely be doing a slight re-route at the end to avoid massive erosion and safety hazards. It has been called the “death plunge” and this year it will just be slightly less deathy.
