Course Map

Kevin Blair of Cyclocross Crusade fame has designed 8 different courses for the Extreme Sports Park. He has named the March 27 course “Roadie” knowing fitness on March 27 is probably more ‘road-like’ than “CX-like”

 
Come try out “Roadie” and give feedback on the course and venue (we’ll trade you a beer or pop for a survey!) so we can make the Extreme CX even better for our upcoming races on Oct 3 and November 27-28.
 
Check back after the March 27 event for details about the fall races.
 
** planned course – subject to set up day changes

Covid-19 Information

Washington State has issued the following requirements for racing:

https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/COVID19%20Racing%20Guidance.pdf

To find out what Phase that Clallam County is in, visit:

https://coronavirus.wa.gov/what-you-need-know/county-status-and-safe-start-application-process

Race requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Wave starts and maximum participant caps

  • Face coverings when not on race course (start / finish area)

  • No congregating or after-party activities at the start / finish area – participants must leave the area after they finish the race

  • Social distance of 6 feet while waiting to start, after finish, at hydration stations, and in line for portable toilets

Additionally, the various permitting agencies (city, county, state, federal, and liquor board) may have requirements on top of the state requirements issued by the governor. Please be patient with us, as we have to respond to constantly-changing guidelines from various agencies, so we will not know all of the details of each race until pretty close to the race date. All registered participants will be advised by email 1-2 weeks before the race regarding the details of what race day will look like.

Food/beer: Some races have food and beer at a location away from the start/finish area. Our ability to provide this, or in what form we will provide this, will depend on the rules in place for the location of the food/beer service, and the health and liquor board guidelines in place at the time for that location.  Races that typically have food/beer at the finish line – GOAT Run and Big Hurt – are in September. At this time we are planning for business-as-usual for these races, but keep checking our website for updates.
