Day of Race registration is also available and opens at 6:30 am.
Day of Race registration will close 15 minutes prior to the start of each event.

Start times are as follows:
Late Season race so light is an issue and that is the reason for earlier start and finish times. NOTE: This race is following a 24 hour format so your last lap must be STARTED before 5:00pm and you must FINISH after 5:00pm.
