Event Description:

Join Baxter Outdoors and the Auburn Summer Festival for a spin through one of Auburn's best kept secrets.

Purchased in the 70's by the town of Auburn, Mt. Apatite once served as an important mining site in the early 20th century. In its present form, Mt. Apatite now serves Auburn's recreational enthusiasts with over 10km of multiuse trails.

The Mt. Apatite 5km will take racers along the 5km loop trail of the property. The course combines single track elements with a few sections on wider double track.

This race is part of the 3rd Annual Auburn Summer Festival.

How difficult is this event?

This course is designed for intermediate and expert atheletes. If you plan on competing for the win, this course will pose a challenge. Footing is typical of a hiking trail in that it is uneven at times. Roots, rocks, and mud are present. This is not a flat dirt path. It is a variable dirt course with plenty of short up and down sections.

Can I get a refund?

Similar to other live events (concerts, sporting events, etc), all sales are final. If you will not be able to make your race, you are more than welcome to give your ticket to a friend or family member. Please contact our office with any issues or questions.

Can kids participate in this event?

All ages are welcome to attend this event. Depending on the venue, age restrcitions may apply on the Baxter Brewing Co after party. Please see the event details tab for information on the afterparty and any applicable age restrictions.
