When racers arrive on Saturday morning they may drive near the race venue and unload their gear. After doing so they must find parking on the Pineland Farms campus.There is ample parking troughout the grounds, but racers and spectators may not park in the Pineland Farms Market lot, on the side of any road, or in any marked spaces reserved for businesses on campus.

We will have multiple food trucks and vendors on site with various options for sale throughout the weekend. Water will be available at the race staging area and on course at multiple water stops.

 

What are the courses like?

You can expect mostly wide, well groomed double track trails. Trail Festival courses are inviting, yet challenging. While they are not exceedingly technical, these are trails so you should expect rocks, roots, and ruts.

Unfortunately we cannot allow campers or RVs at the race venue. If you arrive with a camper and it can fit in a regular vehicle space at the Pineland campus you may park it there, but accessing it during the race will not be possible for racers.
