Hosted by the Copper Harbor Trails Club, the 30th Annual Keweenaw Mountain Lodge Copper Harbor Trails Fest takes place September 1 – September 3, 2023. The annual Labor Day Weekend event features races, music, beer, and good times on Saturday and Sunday! This all-ages event has something for everyone, whether you’re a cross-country lover, blazing-fast downhiller, enduro expert, sure-footed trail runner, or aspiring young ripper. Enjoy the best of what Copper Harbor, MI has to offer with us all weekend!
Saturday brings our classic XC mountain bike race in the morning, split into long and short depending on your appetite for pedaling our hilly, scenic terrain. Later in the afternoon we kick off our Downhill race on Overflow, the biggest, baddest trail in Copper Harbor. Shortly after that our young riders show us what they’ve got in their quest for pint-sized XC glory. We wrap it up in the park downtown with music and beer from local and regional breweries.
Sunday picks up where we left off with a rugged 10k Trail Run that will have you wondering if you should have worn hiking boots instead of running shoes. Later in the morning we send it with our Enduro race, split into three classes for you to choose from. Stick around for the music into the evening along with booze, food, merch, and more. It all culminates with the drawing of winners for our summer raffle and crowning of the King & Queen of the Mountain and Beast Mode Champions. Think you’ll win big this year?
The Enduro and Downhill races are part of the Lake Superior Gravity Series. Additional details can be found in the Participant Guide.
