Swamp Dash Relays at Gators Bike Park

Race #4 in the Gators Race Series


We head back to Gators Bike Park for the series finale.  The Swamp Dash Relay is a brand new race format to close out the season. Riders sign up as an individual.  Coaches will build teams of 4.  Complete as many laps as possible as a team in 1 hour.  Swamp water, live music, food trucks, merch, and more!

As part of Swamp Dash Relays we will be celebrating the installation of our long-awaited DrewsTrak memorial pump track with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!  After years and years (and years!) of hard work, we are thrilled to add a modular Pumptrack to Gators Bike Park!  As usual, expect a huge party atmosphere to celebrate this monumental occasion!

Volunteers Needed:

Great kids races are only possible with great volunteers! We need parent volunteers to help setup the night before the race and to help with registration, starting line, finish line and tear down on race day. The Gators coaching staff will cover all volunteer positions on the course and will be organized separately.


Awards Ceremony & Race Results:

There will be a podium ceremony at the conclusion of each of the 4 Relay Groups.  The team with the most laps completed during the hour will climb to the top of the podium.  All relay race finishers will get a custom Swamp Dash Relay finisher medal.

All results from the Gators Race Series will be celebrated and archived, along with photos, on the Series Results page.
