The Sierra Off-Road Riders Association (SORRA) is hosting its first annual six-hour endurance race on May 17, 2014 at Chappie-Shasta OHV Park.

Just 10 miles northwest of Redding, Calif, the Chappie-Shasta OHV area offers over 200 miles of roads and trails on approximately 52,000 acres for off-road enthusiasts. Elevation within this area ranges from 600 to 5000 feet with a wide variety of topography, soil, and vegetation types. The southeastern portions offer rocky and challenging terrain, while the more remote northwestern portions offer scenic views of Mt. Shasta, Lake Shasta, and the Trinity Alps. Camping is available adjacent to the staging area below Shasta Dam for a minimal fee.

Registration and Tech will be open Friday, May 16, 2014 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM and again Saturday May 17, 2014 from 6:30AM to 7:30AM to pick up your race packets. You must also pass tech inspection to be allowed to race. Rules and other info can be found at
