Red Rock Rumble 30/50
October 14, 2023
Because of the smoke-enforced cancellation of Virginia City 100, this year we will also be offering 75 and 100 mile events.
We do need a minimum of 10 riders to hold the 75 miler, and 15 riders to hold the 100 miler. If held, the 100 miler will be the final leg of the Triple Crown.
Red Rock Rumble is the final ride in the
There will be a 50 mile and 30 mile ride. As in previous years, the lunch stop for the 30s and 50s will be back in camp, with light refreshments offered.
The 50 mile ride consists of three loops of 20, 17, and 13 miles respectively, with vet checks in camp.
The 30 mile ride consists two loops of 17 and 13 miles, with a vet check back in camp.
The ride will be a loop with all holds out of camp. Through the generosity of several local ranchers, we will have lots of water available throughout the ride. It is the consideration of another local landowner that we were able to get you into some really great areas.
The trail is almost entirely sandy jeep roads and sandy single track, there are hardly any rocks. You will pass through a meadow or two that can be wet depending on the weather and there is usually a bit of trail grass along the way as well. There are no significant water crossings but if we have a wet fall there can be very small (i.e. less than 12 inch wide and 3 inch deep) creeks.
The camp is bare bones. There is horse water available, but for the most part you need to plan on bringing what you need. There will be no camp fires allowed. Parking is very limited so if you can trailer-pool then please do so and plan on parking conservatively.
Ride camp is located off Red Rock Road, just a little north of Reno. Take the Red Rock Exit off US Hwy 395 and head east 15 miles. There will be ribbons and signs telling you where to turn right onto a dirt road. Follow the dirt road about a mile to camp. This is a single lane road and will be entrance only on Friday/Saturday am and exit only on Saturday pm/Sunday.
