Barnburner at Steilacoom

Sunday, September 10, 2023

We kick things off this year with the Barnburner at Steilacoom race. Fort Steilacoom Park, site of the 2019 USA Cycling National Championships, is one of the best cyclocross courses in the country.

Just an hour south of Seattle, Ft. Steilacoom holds a lot of cyclocross history in its runups, hills and sand. A fantastic course you won’t forget, a great vibe, ample parking, lots of space to warm up, and great access for spectating make Steilacoom a must on your cyclocross bucket list.
