Chattanooga, TN is known for having some of the sweetest singletrack in the country. We all know the usual riding spots that are open to mountain bikes, but what about the trails that aren’t? Wouldn’t you like to ride on some of the sweetest backwoods trail you’ve ever laid your two eye balls on? This is your chance to ride trails that usually require a super-secret handshake and magic decoder ring to access. Stuff so secret that we can’t even give you a map for fear we’ll be taken away by men in black coats and sunglasses. Introducing the Lula Lake Land Trust 5-Points 50 on October 11th 2013. This isn’t a race; it’s a test of your will and determination. Fire service roads, machine cut singletrack, hiking trails, and backwoods singletrack stretched out over 50 grueling miles on top of Lookout Mountain will challenge you like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

With an event this big, you’d expect a pretty awesome post-ride shindig and we don’t plan to disappoint. No epic mountain bike event is truly complete without a feast to match. Food will be ready shortly after the first riders finish and will continue throughout the day. Adult style beverages will be available as well as sodas and water.

What was that…you want to know about swag and awards??? OK. How about a custom Mason Jar to pour that cold brew in? Cash money to the top three finishers in Men’s and Women’s Open, Singlespeed, and Masters classes. Top three finishers in each class will receive a one-of-a-kind trophy not to be found anywhere else. On top of all this, we will be giving away swag once all finishers have come in and the post race party has started. Swag will include your choice of a Lynskey Pro29 FS-120 or Pro650 FS-140.

Course Description: Imagine if you will…Jekyll and Hyde. That was the most common comment from last year’s race. The Lula Lake Land Trust 5-Points 50 race course is a mixture several public and private trail systems linked together to create the most amazing 50 mile mountain bike course you’ve ever ridden. The first 30 miles of the course is some of the most fun trail you’ll ever ride in your life. Machine built trail with grade reversals, berms, table tops, and rock gardens makes some of the fastest trail you’ll ever ride. The next 20 however will make you question your sanity. Tight hand built hiking trail, creek crossings, leg searing fire and gravel road climbs, and technical downhills will have you begging for the end of the race to come. The total course is 50 miles and 4500 feet of climbing.

Due to an agreement with our many private land managers, we are not allowed to release a map of the course. However, there will be a group pre-ride of the entire course on September 27th 2014.
