Schedule and Timing:
Bib pickup/Sign-in begins at 11 AM at each race site
Race Start: 12:00 PM for the first racer, subsequent racers will be staged in a minimum of 1-minute intervals. Racers will do their laps by first come, first serve. The last racer must start their lap by 2:00 PM. Winners will be announced by 2:15 PM. KIDS race will start at 2:00 PM and last kid must start their run by 2:30 PM!
For Crabtree: The route will be 3 miles and 0.6 miles for the kids short loop. It will include the new ETD/Native Trail sections (Loop 3/4/E).
The shorter kids loop is for those too young to do a full 3 miles- this will be starting from the double track-left on Connector A, left to Connector B and back onto the double track (~0.6 miles).
The route for Briar Chapel is 4.43 miles (roughly).
The route for RTP is 3.3 miles (roughly), small kids can do just the first loop which is at the start (~1/4 mile long).
Each participant will garner points for the races they complete: the more racers in your category, the more points you get where you place (i.e. if there are 15 racers in your category and you place 15th, you get 15 points, 14th- you get 14 points, etc.). If you decide to switch categories between races, we will re-assign your rank and determine your new points minus 1 point for the hassle (at the same time, those who entered the category prior will not lose their points with the new rankings). If someone enters an age category and is actually an Expert racer, we reserve the right to move you up in category. We also reserve the right to combine categories if there are fewer than 3 racers in a category.
To be eligible for a series award, you have to attend at least 3 of the races. We’ve got sweet prizes from our sponsors for all category winners plus first place gets the coveted TORC cup. We are working hard to provide prizes (gift cards/swag) at least 3-deep. Industry Nine has donated 1 men’s apparel kit and 1 women’s apparel kit, valued at $410 to give away as a prize! You could win a DoubleNest Hammock, an Atlas Strap set, or an Echo Bluetooth Speaker from Eagle’s Nest Outfitters (Asheville, NC)! We also have some Back Alley Bike sweatshirts, REI gift cards, CrankArm t-shirts, Bicycle Chain gift cards, and first place in each category will receive a custom jersey from Rouler Sportswear.
