Home to the 100 Mile UMCA National Championship. Part of the UMCA Championship Series.
AUGUST 2017 Washington, North Carolina
Mid Atlantic 12/24 is an official RAAM Qualifying Race for the RACE ACROSS AMERICA.
This event will feature a non drafting 24 hour race and a drafting 12 hour race. The 24 hour non drafting division will be an official RAAM qualifier, THEREFORE ANY RIDER WITH A TOTAL OF 400 + MILES WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE RAAM QUALIFIED. In addition, we will offer a drafting 100 mile race. This years event will be the UMCA National Championship. All race participants must be UMCA members. For non members, your UMCA fee will be accessed with a special rate upon registration to the event. A 100 mile non competitive ride will be offered again this year for those of you that enjoy a more leisurely pace.
The 26 mile loop will take you around rural areas of Beaufort County. We are located in the coastal region on North Carolina. This is a very flat course! It's the perfect venue for riders that are "Self Supported". You are allowed to park your vehicle inside the secure "Bus" parking lot. This is the Start/Finish line, you will pass by for time check after each lap. So feel free to set up your supplies for the day. There is a grassy area that you can set up canopy for your crew as well. On race day our local bike shop will be on site to cover any mechanical needs that you may have.
Offering again this year, 24 & 12 hr Drafting, 2 & 4 Person Relay Teams
Please feel free to email me if you have interest beyond 4 person team.
There will be room in the grassy area near START / FINISH line to set up canopies for your sag. Set up is to begin no earlier than 5am 8/20 and must be removed by 10am 8/21. Main event parking WILL NOT be on the opposite side of the building in the "Student Parking" lot this year due to another event being house at the school on that day. Therefore cyclist will need to remain alert when entering and exiting the timing area due to high traffic volume. We still would like you to be mindful of your SAG exit & entering into the timing area, try to limit them. During the first 4 hours of the event, we will have a deputy at the entrance to the school.
Our host hotels are the Magnuson & Quality Inn (see Area Information tab). Both have blocks of rooms for "Mid Atlantic Ultra Sports". A rate of 64$at the Magnuson and 70$at the Quality Inn. Also, on Friday evening prior to the event, the manger of these two locations will be hosting a pasta dinner at the Magnuson for all cyclist. We appreciate them greatly for reaching out to us and offering these services!
