Classes; Age Limits

Our intent to offer as many race classes as we can, and we will be creative, but we generally combine age and gender groups when there are fewer than three (3) craft in a class. Additionally, no one 14 years of age or younger will ordinarily be permitted to enter the longer races unless racing tandem with someone 18 years of age or older.
