Hare Scramble Race Classes

A

The “A” classes are for fast riders and capable technical riders. The “A” riders will often share a course with “B” riders, but have their own mandatory “splits” off the “B” course that will be longer and feature some more difficult obstacles.

“A” racers will typically race for a longer time (usually 2-3 hours) than the “B” classes, but the exact details will vary race to race.

B

“B” classes are suited for all the other riders with varied levels of experience. If this is your first race, consider choosing a B class.

These classes are competitive, but the race cut-off time is a little shorter (usually 1.5-2hrs) than the “A” classes and the gnarliest obstacles may see a go-around or a “split” to divert the B racers away from the obstacle.

C

“C” includes the Women’s Beginner class as well as the Kids and PeeWee classes.

These classes race on the short (kids) course on the Saturday of race weekend. Cut-off times for these classes vary.

CWomen’s BeginnerThis is an approachable and fun class for women and girls to get started in racing.
If you want to race, but feel like the full race course may still be too much, give this class a try!
This class races on the course that the older kids use, rather than the full A or B enduro loop.
The kids loop sticks closer to the staging area and if you run into an issue, there will likely be help nearby.
