Competition makes us faster; collaboration makes us better

The Adventure Fest at 18 Road weekend features the Sarlacc Attack 50K mtb race, Fruita Trail Half, free events for spectators at the start/finish area, music, food, and microbrews. The running and mountain bike race courses are both fun loops on the beautiful flowy singletrack in Fruita CO. The north Fruita Desert is epic in the spring and we’ll help you enjoy it all.

Camp with us at 18 Road! We’re encouraging camping as part of the Adventure Fest at 18 Road weekend! There are 58 individual campsites and each site contains a fire ring and a grate and has a picnic table and parking for two to four vehicles. Campers must bring their own firewood and there is no electricity, shade shelter or garbage pick up. There are vault toilets within walking distance of the campsites. Dispersed camping is allowed outside of the trail system and requires use of portable toilet systems and fire pits. Check the BLM website for details.

This half marathon course is a fun loop on the beautiful flowy singletrack in Fruita CO. With short steep climbs and descents featuring beautiful views of the nearby buttes and mesas runners will enjoy 13.8 miles of gorgeous open early season desert.
Ride the Edge!
This is not just the name of the trail but a description of the new Sarlacc Attack 50K course. The loop combines The Edge and Sarlacc trails to make up an epic adventure. You’ll ride on the edge of cliffs and your limits. World class singletrack, uphill grinds, and flowy descents all abound on the Edge Loop. The Sarlacc trail section is some of the most fun singletrack on the course and riders will be there on the season’s opening week!
