2014 - Original Growler

The 2014 Original Growler: May 24-25, 2014 - Gunnison, Colorado

Brought to you by Gunnison Trails and presented by Ergon and SRAM. The Original Growler is the primary fundraiser for Gunnison Trails, a Colorado 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Gunnison Trails is dedicated to maintaining and expanding the single track experience in the Gunnison area including working toward building the Gunnison to Crested Butte trail. All proceeds from the Original Growler benefit Gunnison Trails.

The Half-Growler is sold out for 2014. You can register for the Late Bus 32, which is a one-lap race that will take place along with Sunday’s Full-Growler. The price is the same as the Full-Growler and there will be no awards for achievement in the Late Bus 32. However, we will compile and post overall results with times and finishers will receive the same finishers schwag as the Half-Growler riders. The course is exactly the same as the Half-Growler.

Wait list for the Half-Growler: If you’d like to be put on a wait list for Saturday’s Half-Growler, please send an email to: info@gunnisontrails.com. Half-Growler wait list riders are chosen by random drawing and organizational discretion. There is no priority based on when we receive your email. The surest way to be able to check out the Growler is to register for either the Full-Growler or the Late Bus 32, both of which take place on Sunday May 25th.

The Original Growler is for experienced mountain bikers only. Riders must possess the skills and judgment necessary to assess difficult and challenging trails and roads and negotiate them in a safe manner. NO BEGINNERS, PLEASE! For comparison, the general character and difficulty of the trails and roads in the Original Growler is similar to those of the BLM Mack Ridge Trail System near Fruita, CO: Mary’s Loop, Lion’s Loop, Horsethief Loop, Steve’s Loop, etc.
