Conquer the ‘Haunted Hillside Relay Race’

Saturday, Oct. 21, at Noon—KILLINGTON—The Killington Mountain Bike Club, a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Bike Association, is excited to announce the third annual Haunted Hillside Relay Race presented by Fox MTB. This event is a spooky good time filled with bikes, brews, and BOOS, and is a fundraising event for the Killington Mountain Bike Club. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Oct.21, from Noon-3 p.m., with an after-party to follow from 4-6 p.m. at Moguls Sports Pub on 2630 Killington Road, Killington. The relay-style race will take place from TBR to Upper Base Camp loop, and racers will compete in teams of three. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the fastest time, best team costume, and best individual costumes.

The main goal of the event is to raise funds for building and maintaining the trails within the KMBC network. Funds raised from the event will be used to continue providing an excellent riding experience for all bikers in the Killington area. The KMBC has worked hard over the years to create a fantastic network of trails for everyone, and events like the Haunted Hillside Relay Race are essential in raising funds to keep these trails maintained.

The event is open to both racers and spectators, with the vendor village featuring live music from Last Chair, fun games and treats for all ages from Sexy Llama Mobile Espresso Bar, and beer from Zero Gravity Craft Brewery. The after-party at Moguls Sports Pub will feature complimentary food, great drink specials, and raffle prizes from Smith Optics, Fox MTB, and more.

Prizes will be awarded not only to the team with the fastest time but also to the team with the best team costume and the best individual costumes. This adds an exciting and entertaining element to the race and encourages participants to get creative with their costumes

Early bird registration is $75 per team, and week-of registration is $90 per team. Each team registration includes race, after-party entry, and a pair of limited edition Haunted Hillside socks for each racer. For non-racers, after-party tickets are available to purchase for $10 for anyone who wishes to attend.

The vendor village offers live music, fun games, and treats for all ages. The after-party at Moguls Sports Pub is another highlight of the event, with complimentary food, great drink specials, and raffle prizes from Smith Optics, Fox MTB, and more.

If you’re interested in volunteering for the event, the KMBC is seeking volunteers to help with event execution. Volunteer hours can be used to satisfy merchant pass requirements, and volunteers receive free entry to the after-party. To sign up, please visit the following link:
