Rules & Regulations

This event is privately insured, however we will be using the USAC rule book.

Race Support

 Due to the nature of this point-to-point race we will have event staff stationed at several of the access road crossings to assist any participants that have mechanical/medical problems. In addition, we will have a group of HAM radio operators stationed at key points that can assist you as well.

We do not offer shuttles to or from the start/finish area. It is best to have a helpful friend that can drive you to your start locations. You may also find other participants at the registration area that you may get a ride from so that you may have a vehicle when you finish the race.

We provide water/gatorade at the registration/finish line, along with cookies, trail mix, bananas, and other misc. food.
