6 Hours at Chestnut Ridge is a race and fund-raising event to bring the mountain bike community together and celebrate mountain biking. All profits for this event go to COMBO's general trail fund which helps maintain over 50 miles of singletrack trails in Central Ohio.
Race Format: A timed race where solos/teams try to complete as many laps as possible within the 6 hour time limit. The solo or team to cross the finish line first with the most laps before the 6:00pm cut-off, wins. Top three solos/teams in each class will receive a commemorative ribbon and prizes from our generous sponsors!
Start time 12:00pm
End time 6:00pm
Course: The course will consist of approximately 9 miles of singletrack and 0.5 miles of double track (field). The race will be timed using RFID chips attached to cloth number bibs. Le Mans style start. Laps completed after the 6 hour cut-off will not count towards total laps.
Pit Area Set-Up: Solo racers will be allowed to park and set up a 10'x10' "pit" area along the start/finish line. Relay teams will be further away but in close proximity. Each relay team can set up one canopy/tent no larger than 10'x10'. Parking is limited please car-pool if possible.
