You will pass the transition every 10k.Course: 2024 course
This is clockwise on dirt road/paths ranging from 8-12 feet wide.  There will feel like there is a single line yet plenty of opportunity for passing.   The loop is about 6 miles in distance. So, races are approx. 50, 37 and 19 miles.Equipment:  Gravel, cross or mountain bikes work best and all have been ridden historically!Timing:This event will be chipped timed! Chip will be placed on your race number.Results:Results will be posted online at this link: ResultsDuring registration, you also can activate result notification.  You can receive results shortly after you finish via email/text.
50 mileThis is an 8 lap race.  Each lap has been GPSed to 6.2 miles.  So, the finish will be about 50 miles depending on your gps accuracy.  There also is a time cut of, like always.  We decided to make a hard cutoff but give a few extra minutes to allow more racers to complete their laps.  The time cut off to go out for your last lap will be 3 hours.  We will cut the course off at that point.  So, if you have not finished your 8th lap by 3 hours you will be able to complete one more lap if you are on course before 3 hours.
36 mile This is a new option this year.  In the past this has been a B race, but with the 3 hour time limit to start your last lap we have seen that many 50 mile racer end up finishing 6 laps. So we decided to make that an option.  This race will still have a 3 hour limit to start your last lap.  This means, if you havent completed your 6 laps but 3 hours you can head out for one more lap if you can do so before the clock hits 3 hours.  Otherwise you will be credited with the completed laps.
18 mile           This division will be a 3 lap race (approx. 18 miles). This is a 3 lap event which will total about 18 miles.  There is a time cut off of 3 hours.  If you have not already completed your three laps you are allowed to finish one more if you head out on course before the clock hits 3 hours. 
Aid Station:            Located near the completion of each lap, we will have a water station set up.  This will be a place where water can be refilled and bottle hand-ups will be allowed (bring a friend or teammate to hand you your stuff).  We will not have volunteers there to give hand-ups, so you should bring support if you will need assistance with water refills.
