Brought to you by Gunnison Trails and presented by Ergon, the Original Growler is the primary fundraiser Gunnison Trails, a 501(c)3 non-profit trail advocacy organization. Gunnison Trails is dedicated to maintaining and expanding the singletrack experience in the Gunnison area. 100% of the proceeds from the Original Growler benefit trails and Gunnison Trails, including the construction of over six new miles (and counting) of singletrack in the Signal Peak area behind Western Colorado University.
For12 years,the Original Growler has not wavered from our guiding principal of asking you to trade your hard earned dollars for three things:
1) An awesome day on the bike.
The Growler offers a challenging, singletrack heavy mountain biking experience on some of the finest trails on the planet.
2) A killer party.
Food, drink and camaraderie, post race, in downtown Gunnison (for those that still have some party left in them!)
3) Top shelf trails, both existing and developing.
Regardless of where you live, you become a stakeholder in Gunnison area trails as every penny of your entry fee goes directly to the 501(c)3 non-profit, Gunnison Trails, and Gunnison Trails’ mission is focused solely on improving and expanding area trails.
