Elk County Riders, an on/off road outdoor recreation club, is hosting its first annual Side by Side & ATV Obstacle & Mud Run Race on July 20 at the Elk County Riders Clubhouse & Track in Kersey.
The obstacle course race will begin at 1 p.m., featuring three classes of side by sides: 800cc and under, 801-1000cc, and modified.
Don Ruffner, VP of Elk County Riders, said the club aims to "make it a slow, challenging course."
A mud run race will follow the obstacle course to "see if (riders) can drive their unit through the mud."
The races are open to participants 18 and older with registration ($25 fee) beginning at 9 a.m. the morning of the event. The event is open to the public with an admission fee.
