      Our local park is onboard to host a race.  We have been kicking around a relay-style race and the location would offer a really good infield experience for teams.  My question is what would be a minimum lap length or time that you would find interesting? Is a shorter lap more fun because you can get cheered on more,  or do you prefer a longer solitary race?

      I’d say a 2.5 mile lap?  What’s the set up? Singletrack?

      It is stacked loop singletracks,  and 2.5-3 miles a lap would be really easy to do with a grass area to pass in

      I think that will work out for you. It’s short enough that riders can go flat out for a lap. Also, I believe that will give less skilled riders a race they can run, i.e. amature, and the more talented riders something competitive to run also. Sounds like an opportunity for riders at all skill levels.

      Just my opinion.

      Tex, have you considered a poker run?

      This link will give an overview. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poker_run

      This is something that can be altered to suit your group’s needs and such, quite readily.

      Have you plotted out a course yet?

      Maps are cool so feel free to post one up of the course.
