Off-road jamboree converging on park

Burning Rock Outdoor Adventure Park will host the fourth annual Thrills in the Hills off-road jamboree presented by Bub’s Cycle and Polaris today and Saturday in Tams.

Hundreds of off-road enthusiasts will converge on the outdoor park for the skill-testing Time Trial course, the intense Mud Run and a brand new Youth Track.

Guests will also have an opportunity to check out the new moto cross track, which is almost complete.

After a challenging day competing in the races, families will be able to relax under the stars and listen to the West Virginia country sensation Audio Outlaws before a fireworks show.

“This event really does offer something for everyone — whether you like to get dirty in the mud, be technically challenged or just hang out with your family at a live outdoor concert — Thrills in the Hills at Burning Rock is really the place to be this weekend,” said Jerry Sweeney of Burning Rock Outdoor Adventure Park.
