MTB Kingston’s Night Eliminator
August 29 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Free registration is now open for the Night Eliminator race (happening on Sunday, August 29 from 6:30-9:30pm)! https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=26652. We are doing mandatory (but free) registration this year for race events, to help track participation and manage insurance requirements. This is a new step for MTBK members. We appreciate your patience with the bureaucracy and will do our best to make the process simple.
Meeting location and time: Sunday, August 29 the Barn, at 6:30pm for registration confirmation, pre-race COVID screening, and a course pre-ride. Racing will go from 7:30-9:30pm.
This casual evening event is a club favourite, combining night riding and a unique race format. What is it?! The Night Eliminator follows an elimination format, with riders doing laps of a short loop (less than 5km), each lap eliminating riders within a shorter and shorter distance of the leader.
But I’m slow! I’ll be eliminated right away! First off, no you won’t. The first few laps are very easy going, everyone should get in 2 or 3 laps. Second off, that’s half the fun! At the Night Eliminator, the racers become the spectators! By the last few laps, you’ll be having so much fun cheering the speedies on you’ll have forgotten the pain of elimination! (Unless you are one of the speedies…then you’ll just be in pain 😜)
This race is for full club members only (day passes or one-time registrations will not be available).
This is a fun, friendly and informal race, ridden much more like a ride. Our primary goal is to provide inclusive, educational and exciting events for all MTB Kingston members, for all categories of ability, accessibility, genders and skill. All participants are welcome. For this one just make sure you have sufficient lights to ride at night!!
SPECIAL COVID PROTOCOL NOTES:
In order to comply with Ontario’s COVID plan, we have capped registration at 100. This includes all non-race participants – if you have family who will be attending as support, even if they aren’t racing, they must also register (and must be a MTB Kingston member). This is a first-come, first served, hard limit. There will be no exceptions to the 100-participant cap.
We will be conducting COVID screening as part of the race sign-in process. We hope to keep this straightforward and lightweight – a verbal screening, in conjunction with your registration information gathered here. We recognize that these are a lot of hoops to jump through, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and good humour.
