Sorry Honey I've gotta work late! .... 2022 version
We encourage racers to register early. We are offering "worry free" entry. If you register early and "life happens" which prevents you from participating due to rain delay, work, injury etc....we will be happy to issue a credit towards a future event.
All races will be located in Forest Hill Park, Richmond, VA.
Cross course: the lap will be approximately one mile in length using a combination of surfaces that may include grass, blacktop and dirt. What type of bike? We don't care...race your mountain, gravel or cross bike in this event.
Lapped Rider: If you are lapped you can continue to race, unlike some cyclo-cross races. Once the race leader finishes required number of laps, remaining riders will be finished once their current lap is completed. The event will be scored by number of laps completed, then by time.
There will be series awards after 3rd race. To be eligible for prizes, you must enter and race all three events.
All races will be about 45 minutes. Our goal is for the 1st pace overall to race close to 45 minutes. All racers then will finish their current lap once the leader finishes. Will have a countdown lap count at the start/finish. Lapped racers will not be removed from the course! All racers will be able to continue to the finish of the event!
NUMBER OF LAPS:
Race organizers will determine numbers of laps based on average time per lap of leaders. Once laps times are established there will be a digital lap counter counting down the laps. This number will be reduced by 1 each time the leader crosses the line. Note that the number can change by 2 if the leard passes you druing the lap. We will ring a bell for riders to signal "one to go". Historically, the winner completes 11 to 12 laps in the 45 minute window.
Donations will go to the local trail working groups (RVA MORE) earmarked to maintain the trails at Forest Hill Park. Please donate a few bucks during registration.
RAIN OR WET CONDITIONS
To protect/secure our use of the park, we will postpone or cancel a race in the event of rain or wet conditions. Don't let this prevent you from registering early. We are happy to transfer fees to another runriderace event.
Course set up
I will be out at the course by early afternoon. If you are able to come, shoot me an email letting me know you can come and your cell for contact. We will probably need help right up to race start.
