Road Race

Friday, April 21, 2023

Test your endurance and grit along the paved, rolling roadways of the Fort Ord National Monument in the Sea Otter Road Race.  Miles of picturesque hills and valleys provide the motivation to dig deep as you navigate multiple 7-mile loops. Race alongside other riders of similar age and ability and finish by conquering a gnarly climb to the top of Barloy Canyon Road.

Registration includes a four-day festival pass, chip timing, complimentary parking, medals to the top-three finishers in each category, and custom jerseys for race winners.
