    THE GREAT GROWLER FOOD DRIVE! The Original Growler is a BYOB Race: Bring Your Own Bag. We try to eliminate waste and clutter by not providing you with any spiffy disposable or reusable bags that nobody needs. Please bring your own, preferably filled with non-perishable food items for the Original Growler Food Drive. Last year we killed it with this and our local food bank is forever grateful for your generosity.

Saturday- ( RACE DAY – Kids Race & Half Growler )

  • 8:30-10:30 am
    Kids Race! 4 races you can choose ( based on level and age ). More info here

  • 9am
    The Half-Growler, an epic single-lap race. *THE HALF-GROWLER BEGINS WITH A MASS START AT 9AM* Field limit is 350 starters. Entry fee is $109 and includes a ton of singletrack, well-stocked aid stations, a t-shirt or something else, post-race party in downtown Gunnison including a meal and beverages and finisher’s awards. HINT: Lots of locals prefer the Half-Growler because they know just how hard the Full-Growler is. Our most popular distance, the Half-Growler usually sells out quickly. Don’t procrastinate on this one. But if you did and it’s full, take a look at Sunday’s Half below.

    Once you’re done and back in downtown at the starting line, you’ll be smack-dab in the middle of the Growler after party. We have food and beverages (please drink responsibly) for you and eventually, we’ll do awards. We suggest that you put your bike away securely (you might want to bring a lock for peace of mind or get it back to where you are staying or on or in your car), clean up as you like and kick back and enjoy the post-race glow and feeling of abused legs.
