ORA Trails Fest is the evolution of a cross country race that was held in La Crosse for several years. In the past our trails have also hosted an endurance event as well, but we decided to expand to include a spectator friendly short track race, challenging enduro, and still keep a cross country race that includes a bit of everything. We’re excited that you’re here to learn more about our event and hope that our page answers all of your questions. If not, please contact event director, Chris Stindt and he’ll get back to you as soon as he is able.

What is ORA?
The Outdoor Recreation Alliance (ORA Trails) is dedicated to building happy, healthy and resilient communities by providing access to equitable and sustainable outdoor recreation experiences. All proceeds from this event go to support this mission!

Bringing your family?
We have other trails to ride, for folks who aren’t racing!
