It wouldn’t be June without a Red Flint Firecracker to race! We have rocks, roots, lightning fast ski trails, and hard packed dirt waiting for you in 2020. CORBA welcomes everyone back to Lowes Creek County Park and the trails you have been racing since 2005. The Red Flint Firecracker is packed with all of your favorites so don’t miss out on a fun-filled weekend.
We’ll start you off with the fast, hard-packed lead out with a few “whoops” along the way and then you’ll get in position for the first section of twisty pine trees. Next up you’ll want to stay on your toes for a wet creek crossing, a swoopy boardwalk, and our short, punchy climbs. Add in the spectators and our famous volunteers sprinkled throughout the course to make this a race to remember as you sprint to the finish line.
HELMETS MANDATORY for all races.
