The marathon class is a timed event. 3 hrs. + finish the lap you are on. You can stop early and NOT be disqualified. The flier says 7 laps. This is an estimate from last year’s winner.
Wed. the course is all cleaned up , again, after another wind storm. Blazing fast. There is a chance of rain Sat. This week we had 4 days of rain and course ok to ride the same day. Monday night we got almost an inch and Tue am was riding just fine w/o any mud. If it is really wet and rainy I can alter the course a bit and still get the race in. This is a nationals qualifier so it would be hard to re-schedule. I am not worried about trail damage on the rain loop as I have it pretty well armored and I am the one that gets to fix it. And I will. Plan to race things are looking real good at this time.
