GOLDEN KETTLE TRAIL SERIES
Carri Compton | Race Director
This series is crafted to take all the stress away from race day. You get the same outstanding race expreince you would come to expect from a Mammoth event, just on your time. The six different trail systems we cover all have unique features about them and I love that. We experience big hills, fast courses, technical single track, gravel roads, amazing views, smooth wide trails and everything in between. Each race has its own personality that fits in perfectly with the others.
The people are what makes this series so fun. Yes, we have the band, the food, the awesome trails, etc... but its the positivity, laughter, hard work and crazy stories that make the series what it is. If you don't know anyone yet, don't worry - you soon will.
I can't wait to serve you on race day and help you with anything you might need. It's an absolute honor to direct these races and call you all friends. See you at the trailhead!
