Churney Gurney Mountain Bike Festival and Trail Running Races

Click here to edit subtitle

It is with great regret that we are forced to cancel this years Churney Gurney Mountain Bike Races and festival.  Out of an abundance of caution, we feel that at this time it would be irresponsible to have over 400 racer from around the Northeast congregate for the races.  We are very sorry but in speaking with the Town of Queensbury Recreation Department as well as other officials in the Department of Health, we have decided to cancel for this year.

Take heart, We will be back bigger and better for next year and the town is in the process of building more trails which will give us other options for the coming year.  Until then we hope that you are doing well and are staying healthy.  The greatest part of our sport is that even with no races, you can still get out and ride and enjoy the trails.  

We are planning on having our Fat tire day in January so keep that open and we hope to see you on the trails.  

Welcome to the Churney Gurney Festival!!

 The Churney Gurney Grew out of our love of Mountain Biking and running and our need to fundraise for our summer Camp. Each year we run a summer camp for children on the autism spectrum. Our goal has been to provide those children with a true outdoor summer camp experience. Camp under the Woods is in its 10th year and our camp would not be possible without support from our fundraising. The Churney Gurney is one of our main fundraisers, each year making it possible for many children to be able to attend camp. This year we will run a 2 day festival with a 5 mile trail running race, our Churney Gurney Mountain bike race, Demo Rides, Food, Common Roots beer, and much more. You will not find a more family friendly event or park.

Come on out and enjoy the park with the entire family. Gurney Lane offers:

  • Swimming pool with day passes available. (Racers given free admission)
  • Playground
  • Fishing pond
  • Hiking and walking trails
  • Large picnic area
  • Food Vendor and Common Roots Beer
