Turtletown, TN 37317 US


Full MTB Retreat

Ticket sales open on Saturday July 15, 2023 at 12:00am EDT.


A 3-day mountain biking, camping, and Bible studying adventure in Ocoee, TN


What to expect 

This retreat is designed to get you away from the weekly grind and into nature to enjoy God's creation. Bring a tent or hammock to camp out under the stars, unplug and connect with God. Every morning will begin with a meal and devotion before we hit the trails of the Tanasi trail system. Tanasi trails are well-suited for a variety of riding styles, from intermediate to advanced. Some trails will include long climbs with some technical sections. Accommodations can be made for riders who aren't comfortable with these technical sections. We'll finish each day with dinner and a group devotion around the campfire.

The event kicks off on Thursday morning from 8-10am. Attendees are encouraged to arrive on Wednesday, November 8th for early check-in and camp setup.

Ticket proceeds go directly toward covering the cost of campsite rental, food, and supplies.

Sponsorship donations are optional and greatly appreciated as they help Fully Packed continue to host future events.
