Kids Races!

We will be holding kids races from 2-6pm by age. The race course will be run entirely on grass and the tinder walking path. The edges of the course will be marked with event stakes that hold yellow ‘caution’ tape, similar to a cyclocross course. The course will be very flat, and will have turns of varying sharpness. The entire race course will be visible to all spectators – the riders never leave the spectators’ line of sight.

REGSITER HERE!

Children MUST wear helmets to participate in any event. If you do not have a helmet, but would like to participate, please contact muddybike@hotmail.com
