Here is how the breakdown of the beginner and advanced divisions will work. Please keep in mind that all of the racers per heat, and racers moving on are approximate, and will depend on the number of males and females who register. The final exact numbers will be posted before race day.
All participants start together, beginner or advanced. We will have 10 rounds of 15 racers, with the top 7 moving on into the advanced division.
Round 2 will consist of 5 heats from the racers who did not qualify in round 1. This is the last chance to move into the advanced division. Perhaps you tripped on a root and fell behind in heat 1, so this is how you can get back in. You have to earn your spot in the advanced division. The top 3 from these heats move back into the advanced division.
Rounds 3-5 are now split, and we will run beginner heats before the advanced, working our way towards a final heat for both divisions, and determining champions for each.
All that’s left now is to register, and TRAIN, TRAIL, REPEAT
