Terrapin Southeastern Gravel Series Rules and Regulations

Races will begin at 10:00AM in the time zone in which they are held. (Mulberry Mayhem will begin at 8:00AM.)

You must race 5 out of 7 races to qualify for Series Points. The best of five races will determine standings for the top three racers in the series. There are two races that are part of our series that are produced by Mountain Goat Adventures: Southern Cross and Conasauga Crusher. Please follow the link to MGA for registration and race information.

Mass start: The race will be a mass start of all race categories at one time.

There are two distance options for our race series this year, Long and Short. The Long Course is approximately 60 miles and the Short is approximately 30 miles. Each course has its own unique challenges and the length may be shortened due to other more difficult features (i.e. the climb up Currahee or Mulberry Mayhem.)

All racers will be given a number plate at the first race they attend. An RFID timing chip will be safely secured to the back of your plate. Each racer is responsible for keeping up with this plate the entire series. Lost plates can be replaced for $10. Mountain Goat Adventures uses a different timing system. You will receive a different plate for each of those races.

Each racer must have the number plate mounted and visible on the front of the bike. When attaching the plate to your bike, please do not bend the plate as that may cause the chip to malfunction.

​All racers are responsible for staying on course. It is recommended that all racers carry a copy of the course map during the race as well as a cell phone. Course maps will be available at check-in.

Aid stations will be located on the course. They will be stocked with water, Hammer Nutrition products and other goodies. You are welcome to send a drop bag ahead if you would prefer to use your own favorite race fuel. Please label a 1QT freezer bag with your name and plate number. Bags must be placed in the designated bin at registration no later than 8:30AM (7:00AM for Mulberry Mayhem.)

Severe Weather Policy

We work closely with AMB Weather, land management and local trail coordinators to determine if a race needs to be postponed due to trail conditions or weather. Unless otherwise posted, race will be held. Safety of all racers is main priority. If there is a delay or cancellation due to weather conditions, racers are responsible for checking information posted by director. The information will be posted on website, social media and email up to 72 hours prior to the race.

Refund Policy

There will be no registration transfers or refunds once registration is processed.
