Rules for the 4 race Sports Hoodie or 5 race Jacket
It is very simple
Just race any 4 or 5 of the races in the Seasons Series
You can race the same distance, or different distances, in the different races
Sign up anytime. Pre-reg, day-of, doesn't matter. As long as you do the races, you get the swag.
There will be snacks, drinks, and music for everyone at the finish line. Stick around, chat a bit, and cheer for the awardees. There is a very nice playground for the kids...
Each race will be split into the following age divisions: Under 17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
This is a chip timed race. We use single-use tags incorporated into your race number - so no need to worry about returning them after the race. You've got things - like celebrating your big win! - to worry about other than turing in some timing chip.We will post preliminary times every 15 mins, after the first finisher crosses the line. Also, we'll be posting instant results to Racemine.com. You can access Racemine results on you Smartphone within 3 min of your finish.
The trails are hard packed single track and wide track, with one good hill to overcome. You'll love running these fast and flowing trails while passing through light forest. All 3 courses are challenging and beautiful runs. Volunteers
Definitely feel free to bring volunteers! We can always use more people at the water stops, and people helping with parking directions. Plus volunteers get free food after the races... Volunteers should be at the race by 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM to get situated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are definitely bringing a volunteer...
