5 TEAM EVENT – MARC IN THE PARK
March 28, 2015
McDowell Mountain Regional Park
16300 McDowell Mountain Park Dr.
MMRP Arizona 85255
McDowell Mountain Regional Park is arguably the home XC race course for many AZ mountain bike events. The course was home to the Cactus Cup back in the early 90’s and features classic desert riding with short climbs, tight turns, and cactus galore. The course for the MARC event is staged out of the Four Peaks Competition lot, features Cinch, Escondido, Pemberton and a few other new trails. This is a fun team relay event that everyone can enjoy!
McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Shea Blvd. to Fountain Hills Blvd. (into Fountain Hills), Arizona. Follow Fountain Hills Blvd. until it becomes McDowell Mountain Road. Continue 4 miles to the park entrance on your LEFT.
Camping will be in the FOUR PEAKS staging area (on your right opposite Competitive track) – which is also where the event will be hosted. Review our site layout to ensure you won’t have to move camp!
