Hampshire 100 Short Course Events
Saturday, August 16, 2014
5 Kilometer Run - 4:30 PM
Saturday will feature an opportunity to compete in a 5 K off-road course. The event will be held at Oak Park in Greenfield, NH, and is guaranteed spectator-friendly. There will be an open men's and open women's class for award recognition. The competitors will start on the hard-packed dirt running oval at Oak Park, then weave in and out of woods trails, grassy areas, and beneath large pines. No hills, no remote aid stations, no significant technicals, no pavement on this 3 lap course. Lots of cheers as you pass through the lap point/finish line.
Cyclocross Training Race - 5:30 PM
August means it's almost CX season, and this training race will give you a test of how well you are prepped to hit your fall schedule of events. No huge prize list, no large packs, no pressure. Just a bunch of fun while under race conditions, with a dash of recognition, camaraderie, and basic prize incentives.
This course will be a spectator-friendly one of approximately 1-1/2 miles that stays within Oak Park and nearby wooded sections. Expect a few "interesting challenges" along the route.
As a training race, there will be no formal ability designations in force. We start with two classes — an Open Men and an Open Women, each planned as 40 minutes in length.
Lapped riders will NOT be pulled from the course, and all racers may request a printout of their lap times for their training records.

Kids Bike Race
Approximately 6:15 PM
(Immediately following the Cyclocross race)
For the youngest of riders (under age 12), there will be a chance to ride and "compete" on an appropriately modified course. The specific course elements will be determined just prior to the start, and will be based upon the number, age, and abilities of the entrants. From simply riding a stretch of the hard packed oval to instead hitting the trails and riding one full short track lap of approximately 1-1/2 miles. Flexible completion options will be the rule for our young crowd! Helmets required for all.
No entry fee charged for this event, but participants must register prior to the start. Entries accepted only at the venue on Saturday, from 2 to 6 PM. Parent or legal guardian must be present at registration.
