2023 Race Course
We have a new course in the works for 2023. The first section of singletrack is the same we raced last year. We added a second second section of singletrack that will add an incredible amount of fun to the short track race course. We have also moved the finish line, vendor area, sponsors, beer and bikes shops all to the gravel parking lot. ONLY the aforementioned will be allowed in the gravel parking area.
The Carhatt Mansion was built around 1912 by Hamilton Brakeman and Annette Welling Carhartt. Hamilton and his father-n-law started Welling & Carhartt in 1882 near Detroit, Michigan. In 1889, he changed the company to Hamilton Carhartt & Co and converted to manufacturing exclusively workingmen's clothing. Hamilton purchased his first of two Rock Hill textile Mills in May of 1907 and starting purchasing farms in November of 1907. After building the mansion in 1912, the Carhartt's purchased addtional property, eventually owning 1,200 acres along the Catawba River where they grew alfafa, corn and cotton and bred Arabian horses, polo and Shetland ponies, Berkshire hogs, sheep and cattle.
