Prizes and Awards
Top 5 racers in most categories are given a medal for placing. Categories with 10 or fewer entries and/or Beginner categories are awarded 3 deep. Great swag is also handed out by our generous sponsors to those folks who worked hard on race-day to earn themselves a spot. Cash is awarded to top pro and singlespeed open racers. You must be present in order to receive any prizes or awards given for placing in your category.
Looky: they’ve changed slightly from last year, in the hopes of giving those Sport men some breathing room and even up the category sizes in Expert and Beginner.

The Course in Detail
We’ll be running a staggered start this year from Spring Lake Regional Park. We’ll have you line up by category and send you off in intervals to keep trail congestion down. You’ll still be looking at about 25 miles with about 3,500′ of climbing, all starting as you leave Spring Lake, ascend the Violetti Trail, and drop into the maw of Annadel State Park.
