Very Quick Notes:

  1. There is a MD State Park Entry Fee of $3/person for residents, $5 for out of state. Please Bring Cash or your Maryland Parks Pass. Don't complain aboutthe entry fee, keep it in prespective - without these fees we wouldn't have the awesome MD State parks to have events like the the SCCX, Sugar Hill MTB Race, All of the different Fair Hill races, Patapsco CX, Tacchino CX, the Greenbrier MTB race, and all of the amazing places to MTB or CX in Maryland.

  2. Add $10 for Day of / Walk up registration. Does not apply to wait listed registrants.

  3. Minimum of 12 racers in each the Cat 1 Men's and Cat 1/2 Women's races for the full prize. Less than 12 riders split the total of the CAT 1 Men, or Cat 1/2 Women, entry fee pot respectively.

  4. We take Visa, AMEX, Master Card, Discover for all race day payments - but we have a 3% for use of a credit card to cover the transaction fees.
