The excitement kicks off at 8:00 atop the majestic Sun Dance run, where competitors will embark on a heart-pounding course.

Navigate through rollers and conquer jumps that add an extra layer of challenge and excitement to the race.

The ultimate goal? A triumphant dash towards the finish line marked by a banner at the bottom of the hill. Every twist and turn brings competitors closer to victory, testing their mettle against time and fellow racers.
