How It Works
The race starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
The racer finishing their lap will scan out with the registrar. The next racer will scan in. The racer on deck should tell the registrar their name to make the process quicker. If a racer logs out (completes a lap) and their teammate is not there to race, the clock keeps running! Racers logging out should check the time written down to make sure it is written correctly.
The registrars do not have updated results. Updated results will be posted continually throughout the race at a designated location.
Each team's final placing will be determined by the number of laps the team or solo has completed and the sequential order of finish within the team's or solo's last lap. Teams and solo racers may finish before 9 p.m. without being disqualified.
For example, a team or solo racer that has completed 10 laps with a finish time of 9:01 p.m. would beat a team or solo racer that completed 10 laps with a finish time of 9:05 p.m. The last lap must be started before 8 p.m. No racers may head out on course after 8 p.m.
Please let us know if your team stops before the cutoff!
- 8:00 AM Pre-Race Meeting on Race Day (Oct. 2) - The team captain or co-captain must attend, however everyone is encouraged to do so. Everyone on your team is responsible for the rules as they are written here and for last minute changes announced at the pre-race meeting on Saturday.

- Consecutive Laps - A racer may race consecutive laps. The racer must scan out to the registrar the registrar then scan back in. The racer then races their next lap.
- Lap Cancellation - Teams have the option of canceling a racer's lap and restarting the lap from the log in barn with a substitute. A canceled lap does not count as a completed lap. A team member can cancel a racer's lap by notifying the team's registrar at the start/finish barn. The new racers time will start when the canceled racer's time started. Once a cancellation is made, it can not be rescinded.
- Protests - may be made by team captain or co-captain. A protest must written, detailing the incident, witness names, addresses and contact information and signed.

If the protest is overruled, the protesting team forfeits the $25.
COURSE ETIQUETTE . RULES
- Support on the Course - May only be supplied by other registered racers and not your support crew. The registered racer may supply equipment, tools or their bike.

- Right of Way - Racers riding bikes have the right of way over those pushing bikes. If you are pushing a bike, please stay off the rideable portion of the trail so riders may pass. If you are lapping another racer, call out "passing on your left/right". It is up to the passing rider to pass safely.
- NO Short Cuts - Short cutting the course is NOT allowed. If a racer short cuts the course their entire team will be disqualified!
- Racer Assistance . Injuries - If a racer stops to assist another injured racer, emergency personnel will notify the timing barn with the name and number of the assisting racer. Race staff will then inform the team of the assisting racer to prepare the next rider on their team.
