The Special Junior Race starts immediately following the start of the main race.  Race distances vary depending on ability: 3.5+ miles (Beginners), 7+ miles (Intermediates), and 15.1 miles (advanced) and take place on sections of the main race course. The start/finish will be located at the Aspen Grove Trailhead parking area, unless conditions require that we relocate the timer's station to a different location.

Special Junior Race (entry fee is $10.00/Racer):**
Races are for students between 13 and 18 years of age.  Categories will be delineated by gender (male or female) and by ability (beginner, intermediate, and advanced).  Age classes may also be delineated depending on the number of riders registered by category.  Possible age classes per gender and ability level will be 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18.

*If registering as the first member of a team, select "Create a team" on the registration page. You will be asked to enter the team name and you will become the Team Captain.  Once setup, the Team Captain can set a team page password and invite team members to register through their team page. Teammates with passwords can also register directly by selecting "Join a team" and searching for their team name.

**If you are a member of a NICA High School MTB League team, please have your coach contact a race organizer at st8@overlandmtb.org to learn how to register your high school/NICA team members as a group. Please do not register your NICA team under the Junior 3 Person team category, as this race will not be affiliated with NICA teams. You may race in either the "Special Junior Race" or as a Junior team rider, but not both. 

If you would like to camp at Curt Gowdy State Park Friday or Saturday night, sites will be available on a first come, first served basis, as the park reservation system ends on September 15th.  Campers will be subject to regular Curt Gowdy site fees. If no sites are available in the park or you just prefer to camp outside of the park, there will be overflow camping available for no charge at Camp Jack, just west of the Curt Gowdy entrance, on the north side of Happy Jack Road (the gate appears to be chained, but can be opened via the carabiner on the chain).
