Riders launched themselves off jumps, drove over a teeter-totter, rode through rocky terrain, raced one another and thrilled the watching crowd during Herriman’s annual Enduro Challenge at W&M Butterfield Park (6212 West 14200 South) on Aug. 11.

The event also featured a new LED video board where the audience could see parts of the race not visible to certain sections of the stands.

“This event just keeps to getting better and better each year,” Brett Wood, city manager for Herriman City, said in a press release prior to the event. “Due to the high level of excitement, impressive riders, as well as our challenging course, we have seen a dramatic increase in attendance with each passing year.”

The Enduro Challenge featured motocross, ATV/UTV, tough truck and balance bike races for kids ages 2–4. Challenge groups included Mini-MX for ages 4–13, pro/expert, ATV/UTV, tough truck, veterans and an amateur open. 

“Thanks to the longtime support of our Enduro sponsors, Edge Powersports and Staker Parson Companies, as well as the course design constructed by our Herriman city staff, we have been able to put together a first-class motocross event that meets the thrill-seeking intensity that rider’s crave and spectators’ desire,” said Tami Moody, Herriman’s public information officer.
