Special notes...

  • We'll capture a start time & a finish time...splits are up to you.  We'll post those up.
  • This is a training event...so there's no awards, no bibs, no chips, etc.  Just the body marking to get you a number.
  • We'll have a marked course, bike racks, and help yourself aid stations.  We're keeping our costs low, so we can keep your cost low.
  • You have to finish by 11:00 am, so if you start at 8:00 am, you'll have 3 hours.
  • We've put this together to be low cost, low key, and easy to do for the entire family...it's 100% about training and having a good time.
