ALL HOLDS ARE AT BASE CAMP.  The 50/65/75/100 mile riders have a 10 minute “STOP” (here’s directions for your crew) in the middle of the first loop – water will be at the stop, and it is in the middle of a big field of lovely grass.  Crew is welcome at the stop, but not necessary.

BC judging – please weigh in the tent at the finish if you are in the Top Ten.  You are responsible for being seen by the Head Vet within 20 minutes and being judged within one hour of finishing.

 

This is a multi use park so be prepared to meet and be courteous to other people out on trail – bikers, hikers and just out for fun horseback riders. Do not assume that a rider way off in the distance is going the same way you are supposed to go.  Follow your marked trail.

 

Results will be posted on the board outside the tent.

Awards – no official award ceremony.  Stop in at the tent and we’ll trade you – an AERC Evaluation for a vet card and a completion award (plus any other special award you may receive). Rider cards & awards will not be mailed.

PLEASE check the Foxcatcher website on Monday morning for posted results.  If you see anything wrong, please let Alissa know ASAP.  Results will be sent to the AERC office on Tuesday at the latest.  Here’s the link for results.

THANKS FOR COMING, AND HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE ASK.  WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU IN ANY WAY WE CAN.
