The First Annual 5Forty Longboard Challenge is FREE to enter and has $3000 in prizes and $1500 in cash up for grabs, including Arbor longboards for the race heats and swag from Dragon and Ripcurl for best slide.There is only 1 female and 2 contestants under 18, therefore there will only be one category. If you are under 18 you must have a parent or legal guardian (and proof of) to sign the waiver. This is mandatory for race insurance.
The race will be run in heats of 4. The winner will advance to the next round. There will be additional prizes for best slide. The race is capped at 75 people and you must register by August 19 at 11:30am. The race will start at the skier overpass just down from the P6 parking lot and will end up in front of 5Forty in the Fireside Lodge. This is the first longboard race at Sun Peaks so we ask for your patience as we plan for a safe, fun event for everyone and hopefully are able to run more events like this in the future. Don’t expect a crazy course like most downhill races. Spectators are able to walk along the side of the race course and watch as competitor’s speed down the road all vying for first place.
Helmets, Gloves, Elbow & Knee Pads are Mandatory.
