Please note: while Blue Star Blitz will be held on August 22, due to the current COVID-19 situation, modifications have been made to the original format of the Blue Star Blitz. We will no longer be hosting the Short Track Race, Kid’s Scavenger Hunt, Craft Beer Blitz or having a band. Please read below carefully to see all modifications.
While we can’t hold our traditional Blue Star Blitz, we still want you to get out of the house and have some fun racing along some beautiful single track. Don’t worry – we will beat the heat with an early morning start! There are some key changes to Blue Star Blitz this year, all of which have been made to allow us to maximize participant safety while still holding the race. Please read this web page closely so that you are aware of all the changes.
Please practice social distancing at all times and wear a mask when you are not actively running. Please no spectators at this event.

Short Sleeve Recover T-shirt guaranteed to participants registered by August 9, 2020.
There will be no water stops on the race course or at the start/finish line.
Please bring enough water for your race.
No Craft Beer Blitz/Food/Band
We will not be hosting the event portion of the race (craft beer blitz, band, food) and all participants will be asked to leave immediately after they are finished running. If you pre-purchased a souvenir cup you will be refunded. We strongly encourage you to head over to the Gateway Canteen to celebrate your race!
No Short Track MTB Race
We are sad to say that we will not be able to host the short track mountain bike race or the kid’s scavenger hunt. If you have already registered for these, you will be refunded.
Trust us – we are bummed! We want to be able to focus on making this event as safe as possible, so instead of trying to do too much, we are going to focus on the trail race for this event. In September , we will focus on just mountain biking for TreeShaker. Thank you for your understanding!
