WHAT TO EXPECT

  • The course for this event is a short loop, structured as a time trial criterium.
  • The loop will be around a mile to two miles long. The exact course and length are coming soon.
  • You will do as many laps as possible within the two-hour time limit.
  • There will be a staging area -- where you check in after each lap. This is where you will tag off to your teammate.  
  • You can also grab food and drinks and hang out while waiting for your teammate. 
    • You may bring your preferred nutrition, but we will also have a supply of water and snacks in the staging area. All items must be outside of your pack and in clear bags. 
  • Your team will be given a punch card – this is how we count completed laps.
  • Everyone except the honorary is required to carry a min of 25 pounds in a pack or weighted vest. 
Please register in the Honorary division if you would rather walk without any added weight or require a modified route.
