The 2016 God's Country Fat Tire Festival has an event for everyone who enjoys mountain biking and trail running. Our annual festival gets under way Saturday with the 13th Annual God's Country Off-Road duathlon. A super fun event for all ability levels - Veteran endurance athletes will challenge themselves in the Long Course and we have a Short Course option for those newer to the sport. Rock the Duathlon on your own or partner up ( Long Course only) if you are not ready to tackle the whole event alone. Sunday brings us the return of the God's Country Mountain Bike Classic. This will be the opening round of the 2016 Unified Federation of Dirt West Series. All events take place at the Lawrence River Trails which are the most popular trails in our area or good reason. Fun for the entire family.
