Wente remains on course!
Amid the current situation as it relates to the spread of COVID-19, Wente remains on-course.
However, we have selected the backup date of August 15th in the case of a necessary rescheduling of the event.
We will continue to monitor and adhere to all authoritative mandates issued by the CDC and local health officials. Your health and safety is our number one priority. However at the time of this writing on March 25th, the event is scheduled outside of the boundaries mandating social distancing.
Please make sure to sign up to our newsletter below to stay tuned in to any changes related to the event. Should we be required to reschedule, your registration will still be good for the new date.
The Wente 8-hour mountain bike race is far beyond just your typical relay event. It is a full 3-day weekend expedition for your friends and family in one of the most magical places on earth: Wente Scout Reservation.
This team and solo mountain bike race fills very fast because it is limited to just 550 competitors. In reality, the scale of the event is larger than this because racers come with friends and family. It's what makes this experience so special.
Wente Scout Reservation plays host to thousands of scouts each year and introduces a large portion of them to the joy of mountain biking. The Wente 8-Hour MTB Relay Race does a lot to contribute to the further development of this program, and in its way, the future mountain bikers of America. Whether you've been a part of Wente's regular programming, or have never been exposed to the world of scouting, you're in for a great treat during this weekend.
