Due to lack of registration, we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2022 event. Please check back in 2023.
Mountain Bike – Run – Cycle – Crawfish
We are so excited to announce the return of our Tour de Forest fundraiser. The event is returning, but not to normal. The last two years have been tough, full of change, twists and turns….just like our event! This year’s Tour de Forest, dubbed “Trails and Tails” will include road rides, mountain bikes, running and a crawfish boil.
The Atlanta Tour de Forest “Trails and Tails” is a 2-day, multi-sport event located at the Mattie Lanier Richey Center and the Atlanta Sports Complex at 251 Holly St., in Atlanta, TX. Participants can enter 1, 2 or 3 events. All participants will receive 1 lb of crawfish and have free access to the trail once competitive events are finished.
Atlanta’s Trail – The trail at the Atlanta Sports Complex is one of the best in East Texas. This 6.5 mile trail is full of hills, switchbacks, nature and challenge. Run it, bike it or both. You won’t regret it, but bring your bug spray.
Road Routes – 3 new routes for 2022, 8 mile, 28 mile, 49 mile. All routes are supported. Check them out – 2022 Routes
Coach K will be on site Saturday serving up crawfish! Crawfish boil is open to the public. Each participant will receive 1 lb of crawfish and can purchase more. Coolers are welcome! We will have cornhole set up and a vendor fair. Plan to stay a while.
