Here's the short version: The
health of the trail is the second priority behind racer safety.
We don't want our trail getting destroyed. You understand
that, right? If we get a lot of rain prior to the race it will
be moved to the rain date of October 29th. This will be
announced on the SORBA-CSRA website and in an e-mail to all
preregistered riders. If we get even more rain before the rain
date, we'll have to cancel the race. SORBA-CSRA will pay our
expenses for the event, and then issue a prorated refund to all
racers with whatever money is left over. If the race starts on
either date, but then heavy rain moves in, we will cut the race
short. If the race starts, no refunds will be given.
Course will start at Horn Creek trailhead and travel down campground
gravel road. At stop sign, course turns right onto paved road. At
next stop sign, course turns right onto paved road. Road turns into
gravel after 1/4 mile. Course enters Horn Creek Trail on left after
1/2 mile. Course follows Horn Creek trail back to same gravel road
where you entered the trail. Course follows same route back to
trailhead. This is 1 lap. A lap is about 8 miles long, 6 miles
of singletrack on the Horn Creek trail and 2 miles on gravel/paved
roads. Only place where there will be two-way traffic is on
gravel/paved roads. When you enter Horn Creek trail, you will
be going slightly downhill over a lot of tree roots and bridges.
There is a little climbing. You will cross a gravel road and enter a
1 mile climb. You will cross another gravel road and enter a very
fast section. Starts flat, goes downhill, more flat, bridges and a
little climbing. You will cross another gravel road. Section
starts flat where you can get very fast, has bridges, very sharp
right turn on a climb that if you don't make the turn, you will fall
into the creek. Course climbs for 1 mile. During this climb, you
will go by the trailhead and end at the gravel road where you
entered the first part of the trail.
