    6 Hour Paranormal Race October 22

    Here's the flyer link folks!

    http://www.cvilleracing.org/events/p...paranormal.pdf

    Plenty of room for camping and costumes are strongly encouraged. Last year you got an entry fee discount. This year, even better....

    Nzumbie posted this also. I'm interested in this one. does anybody know what the the course is like and what it is compared to as in the local trails around Maryland? I'm asking this because I've never did a race before and wondering what to expect.

    The Panorama trails are typically tight and wooded single track with some roots, down logs, and occassional rocks. Almost no flat spots, and typical elevation changes of about 50 to 100 feet. This is in the "Peidmont" portion of the state, or the rolling foothills right before you get to the mountains. The course should be about a 1 hour loop which circles back through the start area.

    Panarama farms are literally in my backyard... our XC course (UVA) is also within Panarama, so I do a lot of runs there, including a lot of the bike trails. Tight, wooded single track is a good description, however, there are some flat spots. Expect roots, but definitely not as much as Lodi (if you've ever done that...). Great course, and the brothers that own the farm are great people. I'm not sure if I'm doing this race yet (as it's college XC season) but I will definitely be there for the race.

    If you have any specific questions, I'd be glad to help you...
    waaahoooooooooooooooooo

    Do you need to pre-register for this race or can you register when you arrive? Also is there somewhere you can charge your lights? Thanks!

    You can register at the event, but there is no place to charge. You can always get converter and run the charger from your car.

    Fattire is right, there's no place to charge this many batteries... however, you shouldn't really start needing your lights until 2-3 hours into the race (given it's a clear evening/night). If you decide to register at the event it's $5 more than doing the online registration.

    All I need to do now is to figure out my costume....
    waaahoooooooooooooooooo

    Just a quick update on the course

    Everything is running smoothly for the Paranormal. We have a course chosen and mostly laid out (Fattirewilly helped out with that yesterday) and it should be a really fun time.

    You can come out and race seriously or just chill out and watch movies. Also if you have any kids that ride bikes, we will be having a free kids race at 3:00 before the adults start at 4:00. Hopefully that will be a lot of fun.

    To find the flyer, rules and registration info follow the link and look for the skull.

    I will be there since I am pretty much the race organizer. If I can swing it...I'll race. I am already registered. I think Fattire is looking for a partner.

    I have a partner for sport, but I'd like to do Clyde duo. My current partner lost weight over last year and can't make 200, even if he carries my beer.

    Current partner is happy to do sport solo, so I'm game if another clyde wants to ride duo.

    Anybody know if there will be drinking water at the campsite? I'm assuming "primitive camping" means nada.
