Practice Race Guidelines

B-race – Category 4/5 – 25 Minutes

A-race – Category 1/2/3 – 40 Minutes

This is purely a practice race with no race numbers, no points, and zero prizes. The goal of this event it to get in a solid workout and practice skills. We encourage racers to push their limits, respect your fellow racers, and remember this isn’t one of those super serious races with $20 bucks and a bottle of olive oil on the line…

We will not keep track of official results, but bragging right and potential social media glory are still on the line. When possible, the top 3 of each race will be recorded and posted online for the world to see!
