Kids Race details:
A bit of information for the kid's race, which has been rescheduled for this Saturday, April 13, at 1:00.
The kid’s course will be as follows: enter the singletrack at an entrance at the top of the boat ramp, take the singletrack that weaves around the skills areas, go past the connections to Loop 1 and the B connector and take the doubletrack straight to the pump track. At the pump track turn right onto the Highland Trail. From here it’s the same as the 6-hour course: Highland Trail to Connector D, to the Lake Trail, and back to the boat ramp.
7-8 year olds: 1 lap. Estimated time 25 to 40 minutes*
9-10 y/o's: 1 lap. Estimate time just under 20 to a bit over 30 minutes.**
11-12 y/o's: 2 laps. Estimated time 35 to 45+ minutes.
13-14 y/o's: 2 laps. Estimated 30-45 minutes.**
*Strength and skills can vary widely among these age groups. Some riders, especially the younger and/or less experienced, may find the distance and singletrack course challenging. We encourage you to ride along with racers of any age group, but especially those you think might take longer or be nervous on the trails alone.
**These distances may be a bit short for the older kids or more experienced riders. Encourage them to focus on a hard effort over endurance (while staying safe, of course).
VOLUNTEERS- we'll need a few course marshals and adults to ride "sweep" at the back of the race. Please send me a message if you're able to volunteer. It's a relatively short event so an easy chance to earn some good volunteer karma.
Boys and girls of the same age will start together but they will have separate results/placings (example: Category 7/8 will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place boys and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place girls).
Entry fee: FREE, thanks to TORC. TORC will, of course, be happy to take any donations at registration.
Registration: Race-day registration at the event, beginning around 12:00. Please be registered by 12:45, we'll have a racers meeting at 12:50.
Grown-ups are encouraged to ride along with their racers, just stay out of the way of the other racers - some kids may be faster than you expect.
Send me a PM with any questions or to volunteer.
