Weekend Events: Earth Day Fest at Hugh McRae and Race Series at Blue Clay!

Hello everyone happy Thursday! A couple of events coming up that I wanted to share with everyone if you were not already aware!

First of all Cape Fear SORBA is proud to announce the first of many Outreach events that we are planning for now until the fall! Our new pump track coordinator Corey, club member April, and eventually myself will be out at Hugh McRae park for the Wilmington Earth Day Celebration this Saturday! The festival starts at noon so come out and check out what we got going on and ask questions! You can pick up our new brochure with a calender of events inside as well as try and win some gift certificates to Two Wheeler Dealer! We will also have club t-shirts on sale at our booth! For more information on the Earth Day Festival you can click here. Look for more information about cool upcoming events in the next week or so while we iron out a few details. Hopefully we will see you on Saturday!


However if you can’t make it Saturday we also have something going on at Blue Clay on Sunday!! The 5th race in the Coastal Carolina Off-Road Race Series of course! Come help out, race, or just watch the fun as we put on the 5th race in the series! Team Cape Fear SORBA currently leads the team point standings so we need some fans to come out and cheer us on folks! We can wrap up the Team Championship with a strong showing this weekend! Want more information about the race series? Click here! By the way, if you want to help out with the event you can email me at!

I hopefully will see some smiling SORBA faces this weekend, its going to be a blast folks!

See you on the trails,

Volunteer Update: Still need a few more!

Ok folks still need some help this weekend at the Blue Clay Race. We need a few people willing to help out at the road crossing, parking, and a few other things as needed. If you are willing to help please email me at

In addition…

We still need two or three more volunteers to help out for the Duathlon on Sunday May 15th.  If interested please email Jay @
This is an excellent opportunity for the club to raise some money that can be used to work on trails, purchase tools, and other stuff that we want to do within the club.

See you on the Trails!


CFSORBA Volunteer Opportunity May 15th.

In addition to asking for Volunteers for the May 1st Race at Blue Clay we have another event that we could use some help with. This time its not our event but its a great event for us to help with. The club receives a donation for volunteering at this one! Details below! This information comes from Secretary Jay Pearce.

Atlantic Orthopedics Duathlon at Brunswick Forest – Sunday May 15th

Cape Fear SORBA has been asked to help out with the Atlantic Orthopedics Duathlon which will be held at Brunswick Forest on Sunday May 15th.  I have been in contact with Ed Fore, and he has requested that we have at least six volunteers to help out with his event.  Three volunteers will be located at a key location on the course, and three others will help out at the transition area.  In exchange for the members of our club volunteering their time, Ed will make a donation to our club.

Please contact me by phone or email if you are interested in helping out with this event.  I need to let Ed know by next Friday (April 29) how many volunteers we will be providing.

So if you want to help, shoot Jay an email! Or give him a call! Things like this help us fund trail building and events folks!
