General Information
The first ever Ninja Night Race will be held on Thursday October 24th, 2013 at the San Dieguito River Park near Lake Hodges. This USA Cycling sanctioned event is the first sanctioned race that happens exclusively at night so you will need lights to compete.

In addition to all of the normal safety rules associated with a USAC event we are also implementing the following:

• You must race with both a light on your bars and a light on your helmet.
• Total lumens of your setup must be 1000 or more. Light output will be measured at event registration.
• Crossing the finish line without your lights working will result in an automatic DNF, no exceptions.

Race Fees
Included in your $55 entry fee is the following:
• Race Entry
• Chip timing
• Exclusive event t-shirt
• Goodie bag loaded with stuff
• Special Ninja Night Race badge of honor
• Post-race food
• Raffle ticket

We are also excited to offer cash prizes for our pro-category riders.

Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers in each category. Pro/Cat 1 can also earn some cash prizes:

Pro/Cat 1 Men:
• 1st – $100
• 2nd – $75
• 3rd – $50

Pro/Cat 1 Women:
• 1st – $120
• 2nd – $85
• 3rd – $60

The awards ceremony will immediately follow the race.
