We truly wish there was a way to say this in a way that you haven't already heard so many times before, but the Final Edition of RockstAR will be cancelled.
We've confirmed that our beloved venue will not be able to host us for July, and that their re-opening date is still unknown. As disappointing as the situation is, our thoughts are more with the staff at Bark Lake, who we hope will soon be able to return to the amazing work that they do, once things finally start to take a turn for the better.
There are literally pages we could write to express our sorrow over this decision. We could blither on for days about the amazing times we've had; how much RockstAR has meant to us; and the pure joy we've gotten from watching and hearing your experiences year over year. Truthfully though, there's really no need. We'd rather focus on the one constant that this pandemic can't take away:
The wilderness is still with us.
Let's enjoy the hell out of it.
To that end, we have created a dedicated page at racetherockstar.com/withlove
, that features complete course map sets from four of our past Storm Racing events. These will provide trail data and details not available anywhere else from a single source. Some may be a little dated, but we put an awful lot of time into our fieldwork, and there's no sense in it going to waste!
We invite you to create an adventure of your own this summer, be it over the July 17-18 weekend, or any other time. These are not being offered as a 'virtual' event, but just as a means of offering what we can to make the best of the situation.
