Complete the highest number of laps in six hours and you will be crowned the champion of the race. Incentives include awards, trophies and cash prizes.
The racecourse is a 10-mile loop featuring rock gardens, hard-packed access roads, technical singletrack and 1,200 feet of elevation changes and then some. It all begins at the Holiday Valley Mountain Sports Center at 10 a.m. with a Le Mans start.
After each lap, riders dismount and walk through a transition area to their pit area for rest, “fuel” and rehydration.
The final lap of the race begins at 4 p.m. and ends at 6 p.m., followed by dinner for participants.
Online registration is available at www.heartrateup.com until July 9. Registration fees are $105 for teams and $65 for soloists. T-shirts will be given to preregistered entrants. Race-day registration will be available if not sold out.
Proceeds from the event will be used to benefit HEART Animal Shelters.
