For age categories (Jr., Master, etc.) all team members must be within that age category. Want a category we don't offer? We'll make any category for two or more teams.
CAMPING: Absolutely NO CAMPING in Redwood Park. The city is very vigilant about enforcing its policy of no camping within city limits. There's KOA only 4 miles from the venue, and Clam Beach Campground is about 6 miles away.
RACE DAY SIGN-UP FROM 7AM TO 7:45 ONLY: $15 per rider race day late fee
Racer Packet Pick-Up: Race-day packet pick-up for pre-registered riders is 7:00 to 8:30 am, BUT, we strongly urge racers to pick up their race packets the day before at Redwood Park from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Pits: The first 20 8-hour solos to register will have assigned parking spaces adjacent to the start finish. There is limited parking in the park's 2 lots (see course map), so arrive early. and be prepared to pit on the Redwood Park Lawn. Late arrivers will be able to drive in to drop off supplies, but will need to park outside of the park.
Riders Meeting: All team captains must attend the 8:30am riders meeting and we strongly suggest that all riders attend too. Learn lap check-in, course details, rules, etc.
Start/Finish Time & Location: We'll start the race promptly at 9am. The start/finish is in Redwood Park adjacent to the playground.
Only laps COMPLETED by 5pm (for the 8 hour) or 1pm (for the 4 hour) will be counted.
Lap Counting: Each team will be provided with a wood "baton" that MUST be carried by the rider on course. A 15-minute penalty is assesed for a lost baton. Only one rider from your team is allowed on course at any time. At the finish line, upon the completion of each lap, the rider must stop to have that lap's finish time recorded.
Course: It's a fun 7.9 miles with about 1400' of climbing per lap.
We'll use standard arrows and ribbon and such. The course will be marked by the afternoon of 8/21.
Self Sufficiency Rule: Once on course, only the rider him/herself may work on the bike, and only with tools and parts carried on the bike. Each lap mush be completed on the same bike on which it began. Once back at the finish line you can switch bikes, get help from your team or spectators or Santa Claus for that matter, but you gotta get there under your own power and with your own mechanical know-how and ingenuity.
Awards: We'll have Team Bigfoot Medals for top 3 in all categories. We'll also raffle off some cool sponsor schwag. The better you and your team do, the more raffle tickets you'll get.
