The 2013 Meltdown at Harris Lake was an endurance event held on Saturday March 9th. All the details are archived on our meetup page.

We had great weather and wonderful trail conditions for the race. Thanks to everyone who came out to participate or to volunteer. It was great to see several people trying their first endurance event, or setting their personal best for longest mountain bike ride.
