FAQs (age, parking, etc.)
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
No, all ages may participate; Riders under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign off on the waiver. Friends' parents or siblings do NOT count - only riders with waivers signed by parents will be permitted to compete, and the parent's signature must be witnessed by event staff. IF PARENT / GUARDIAN CANNOT ATTEND, THEY MUST HAVE THEIR WAIVER SIGNATURE NOTARIZED AHEAD OF TIME!
What are my parking options getting to the event?
Parking is to be along Mass Ave. There is parking space alongside the entirety of the road between the Harvard General Store (1 Still River Rd) and Pond Rd. See map HERE. Do NOT park in the General Store parking lot, as this is customer-only parking. There will be signage indicating so, and staff members directing riders where to park. Once on-street Mass Ave parking fills, event staff will direct you to backup parking locations.
Is there anything I CAN'T bring to the event?
DON'T BRING ALCOHOL! Harvard is a dry town, and there is absolutely no alcohol to be sold, purchased or consumed in the event area. Drinking on the premises jeopardizes the future of the event, and it undermines the credibility of the event and organizer in the eyes of the town and police. So please - just don't drink! Any spectators caught holding and/or consuming alcohol on the event premises will be asked to leave immediately and, if necessary, escorted from the event with no re-entry. Riders caught drinking will be disqualified and similarly asked to leave.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes! Riders will only be eligible to compete in their respective divisions upon presenting a unique, paid ticket. If you are paying for multiple riders, please indicate the names of the other riders in the payment notes.
What is the refund policy?
No refunds. Sorry!
