(Steamboat Springs, Colo.) May 20, 2015 - Honey Stinger, the leading manufacturer of honey-based nutritional products, is pleased to announce that the fifth annual Steamboat Stinger race will return, August 15-16. The popular two-day festival includes a 50-mile mountain bike race, as well as a trail marathon and half marathon on the singletrack trails of Emerald Mountain in downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

“We’re excited to see that the Steamboat Stinger has become a marquee event on many people’s summer race calendars, and that it gives us an opportunity to give back to some important local charities,” says Honey Stinger marketing director Len Zanni. “We’ve worked hard to create a great course on some of the best trails anywhere, and we’ve been rewarded by a nearly sold-out field of racers, which includes both national champions and weekend warriors alike.”

Mountain bike competitors can choose to tackle the singletrack in either the solo category or in teams of two on Saturday, August 15. Trail marathon runners will compete in either the full or half marathon on Sunday, August 16, following a similar route as the mountain bike race. Racers competing in both the 50-mile solo mountain bike race and the full trail marathon with the fastest combined time will have the opportunity to take home the title of King Sting or Queen Bee.

Field limits for this year’s Steamboat Stinger are set at 500 cyclists and 400 runners. Limited spots remain in the solo mountain bike categories, and the duo categories are now waitlist only. Entry fees for the trail race are $45 for the trail half marathon and $60 for the full marathon. Entry fees for the mountain bike race are $90 for the solo race and $160 for the duo race.

All proceeds from the event will go towards local youth mentoring group, Partners in Routt County, and local IMBA chapter, Routt County Riders.
