With rolling pine laced single track on bluffs above Town Creek, participants have tons of interesting terrain to take-in while they put out max effort for unique prizes.


About the Cause

Cape Fear SORBA is a chapter of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA). It is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit whose mission is to create, enhance and preserve great trail experiences for mountain bikers in the Cape Fear Region of North Carolina.

Cape Fear SORBA was born in the Fall of 2009 when a bunch of like-minded individuals organized and formed a club from the Mountain Bike contingent of the Cape Fear Cyclists. They hoped that with a Mountain Biking specific club in the region they would be able to open up more riding opportunities. The club has since grown to over 100 members and is now in charge of trails in both New Hanover and Brunswick Counties.

Run the most scenic and challenging trails in southeastern North Carolina. Located in the 912 acre Brunswick Nature Park, most of the course is on bluffs above and trails next to the historic Town Creek. Mostly single track, the racing is both technical and scenic. With hardwood trees, and gently rolling terrain, the course is different from most of the topography in the lower Cape Fear region. Located 15 minutes from downtown Wilmington and 15 minutes from downtown Southport, it is in the perfect location for easy access to large population centers.

Due to the nature of this race course, strollers, wheelchairs and dogs are NOT permitted to participate.

 3.5 hours (16 min. per mile)
MARATHON: 6.5 hours (14:52 min. per mile)
