The Mid Atlantic Super Series is proud to announce our 2020 schedule. The MASS is a collection of 21 races in 5 states covering the disciplines of XC/Endurance and Enduro. All of our races are put on by individual race promoters that bring their own special something to their race. The MASS is proud to support junior racing and the NICA leagues in our region.
We open early this year with the Rattling MTB Marathon Endurance Series opener on Sunday, March 28th on the IMBA Epic trail network in Weiser State Forest in central PA. Classic PA singletrack with plenty of rocks. This race will include the first-ever E-bike category in a MASS race.
The XC Series kicks off on April 19th with a new race, the Buck Snort Hollow XC and Endurance race at a venue we call the “Farm” in Marysville PA. This is a classic MASS venue with over 15 years of MASS race history. 100% of the proceeds of this race will go to PICL, the PA NICA chapter.
We open our Enduro series on April 26th with the Bear Creek Spring Enduro at the Bear Creek Resort in PA. Sticking with what's new we bring a new Enduro to the MASS this year, the (Re)Launch Enduro at Spring Mountain PA on Sunday, June 7th. Look for 6 to 8 stages of short but steep and rocky tracks on trails we raced on almost 20 years ago.
Our summer XC and Endurance schedule remains similar to previous years. Our July 11th XC and Endurance Race, Escape Granogue, takes place on the private lands of a duPont Estate in northern Delaware are a celebration of sorts. This year is Mr. duPont's 100th birthday and along with that, we celebrate 25 years of racing at this historic venue in the Brandywine Valley. The MASS XC and Endurance Series wrap up with finals at the Big Elk XC and Endurance Race at Fair Hill, MD on Saturday, August 22nd.
We have made a few date changes in the second half of our Enduro Series. We are super stoked to be back at Mountain Creek Pike Park in NJ for our second year of the King Of The Mountain Enduro that moves to Sunday, August 30th.
The Raven Enduro in State College PA moves to Sunday, September 20th.
We come back to northeastern PA for our 2 final Enduros at hugely popular venues. The Steel City Enduro in Bethlehem PA will be Sunday, October 4th.
