RACETRACK BIKE | WALK | RUCK INFO
EVERYONE. You have plenty of time to enjoy your on-track experience. We will have someone in a cart following the last person/people, keeping you on schedule.
We will provide bottled water at the start/finish area.
If you walk or ride onto the course with a water bottle, you must carry it out! Please do NOT dispose of the water bottles or any other trash on the race course or toss them outside the racetrack fencing.
MILITARY RUCKING. As of now, we have clearance to wear rucksacks on the racetrack. However, if security officials decide that allowing participants to carry service packs onto the course poses a security risk, we may no longer be able to have packs on the course.
If you are planning to military ruck the course, please know that your pack is subject to search before allowing entry onto the race track.
You will not be allowed to take your packs into the Grand Prix race. They have a clear bag policy. We suggest taking your packs back to your car prior to entering the race gates.
Please note- We have no control over race course security. We will do our best to communicate via email and update our website with any changes. We will provide information and updates if any become necessary.
CYCLING. Anyone riding a bike must always wear a helmet while on the racetrack.
Please be courteous and announce your approach to walkers and military ruckers.
