Pre-Race Info and Rider Instructions
8:30 am – 9:45 am – On-Site Registration -at the band-shell
9:45 am – Rider Meeting – at the band-shell
9:55 am – Line up to Race – Down on the beach – Just North of the water treatment plant
10:00 am – Race Start – Racers head north along the lakeshore for 9+ miles to a check-point at the very north end of Herrington Beach State Park. Every racer must check in at the turn around point. After checking in with the race official at the check-point, racers turn back around and head back south, all the way back to the Start/Finish Line. Returning racers must yeild to oncoming racers and stay right when neccesary. This will mean that south-bound racers will have to ride in the softer sand on the way back to the finish (where 2 way race traffic exists). The first 3 men and women will be awarded prize money. No other results will be recorded.
Important information for during the race!
These are public Beaches- Be courteous and yeild to everyone that you pass.
Stay along the lakeshore – do not trespass by going above the high water line onto private property
Pack everything out that you pack in – do not litter
Stay to the right – yield to oncoming race traffic – even if that means stopping in tight spots or riding in soft inland sand
This is a rain or shine event – you will get wet even if it’s a perfectly sunny day – there are several creek crossings that are all ridable
Carry everything that you will need – be self sufficient – tools – food – water – clothing
