The race will follow the legendary Kamikaze bike trail. Spectators and family can greet you at the finish line and cheer you on from the summit, with an evening gondola ride to the top. Everyone can witness the July full moon rise high in the sky, and then get down at the 11,053 Sunset & Full Moon Summit Party.

Time: 3–9:30PM, race starts at 7PM



About Ezakimak

Ezakimak is Kamikaze spelled backwards. Our legendary Kamikaze mountain bike trail spans from Mammoth Mountain's peak down to Main Lodge, weaving through the "backside" of the mountain. In winter 2015, we started this backwards fun by sending cross country skiers, snowshoers and runners on an uphill race on the snow. After the success of the winter Ezakimak we kept the idea going and brought a summer version to the dirt for runners and mountain bikers. Sign up now and let them eat your dust.
