More than 150 riders took advantage of ideal weather conditions Sunday afternoon to compete in the season-opening Coastal Carolina Off-Road Series race at Browns Creek Nature Park and Bike Trail in Elizabethtown.

Races were divided into categories and age groups depending on the experience level of each rider. There was a kids race for ages 12 and under. The length of the adult and youth races varied depending on category. One lap around the Browns Creek course is about six miles and features climbs, switchbacks, jumps and obstacles. The start of the race encompassed the vacant area across the street from the Curtis L. Brown Airport before riders traversed the wooded areas through the park. Races were between one and three laps, depending on category.
