Powdr Shot

Take part in the second annual National Powdr Shot Biathlon race series! Enjoy beautiful air and scenic forest trails, at the country's premier mountain resorts, while having the time of your life. Test your skills on the air rifle target range, combined with either trail running or mountain biking while supporting a great cause. It may just be the most fun you've ever had!

Race proceeds will be used to maintain clean healthy sustainable forests by: Removing the standing dead and opening up the forests for new growth, assisting with new plantings if deemed prudent by the Forest Officials and Replanting both on and off-site.
