Sept 15-17, 2023
Gravel, singletrack, and backroad riding in a big 50 mile loop from Maple Falls to Glacier, WA
Featuring Red Mtn, Black Mtn, Bay to Baker trail, Bald Mtn back to Black, with some unofficial “locals only” stuff.
Camping, BBQ, and games both Fri and Sat nights with heated games of Sabacc. Can you win the Millenium Falcon (without cheating)?
More details and game rules to follow, but here’s the rough idea:
This will be a “Poker Run” style event with a Star Wars theme, inspired by the movie Solo. Watch it now to get a leg up on winning the Millennium Falcon prize! Find the rules for playing Sabacc and practice playing to gain even more advantage. Can you finish the full route in less than 12 parsecs?
Detailed route options will be published the week prior to the event with card station GPS locations provided Saturday morning. Choose your own approach to gaining the most cards and/or the best hand! Ride with your crew or just show up Friday night to be added to teams of 3 to 6 smugglers (we will mostly ride together if possible).
Save the date! Add weekends prior to your calendar to come out for helping with trail prep in exchange for advanced knowledge of the Kessel Run. Friday night available for getting your camp set up. Sunday can also include some hot laps on handbuilt XC singletrack departing right from the campground. Stay the whole weekend to check out the trails at Silver Lake Park (cabins and camping available, once home to an excellent Cascade Cross weekend event) and take a swim or paddle!
