Kids Series

The VIHSS is proud to be hosting a full race series for Kids!

We’ve hosted standalone kids races in the past, but we’ve recently introduced a bunch of new classes, for pee-wees & kids where they can compete at each race and accumulate overall season points for a championship finish, just like in the adult classes!

In addition to the regular kids’ classes, we now also have a girls’-only class and a women’s beginner class too! Each of these classes will race the C-loop, which is not as long and remote as the B-classes, but will still be challenging and fun!

The C-classes will race on the Saturday of the race weekend.

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.
