The Deuce Drops Soon – Ready to Non-Race?
Okay, everyone. As our non-race draws near, we need to get an official headcount. Are you planning on attending Team Virtus’ 2nd Annual Non-Race, The Deuce, on March 13th in the Holts Summit, MO area? If so, we need to hear from you. We need to know if you’re planning on non-racing so we can order enough maps. And unfortunately, you’re going to have to buy the map. We’d love to be able to provide it for you, but we also really need to make sure we feed our kids. It’s only going to be 10 bucks or so, and you can pay at the race.
Here is a brief description of the course:
- 20 – 35 miles of biking on gravel roads, paved roads, and some single track
- No Paddling (sorry, we just aren’t ready to offer this yet)
- 5 – 15 miles of trekking on the rogaine-style orienteering section
- Possible Mystery Event (or two)
- Guaranteed Good Time or Your Money Back (minus the cost of the map)
You can run this race however you want to… Solo, Duos, Trios… Whatever. If you’re a true beginner that really wants to give it a go, let us know. We can pair you up with someone, or we can even do the race as a small group with someone from our team to help guide and teach you.
But you HAVE to let us know you’re going to be there. And let us know how many are racing on your team so we don’t order too many maps. Comment on this blog post to let us know. Or you can get in touch with us on our facebook page, through our twitter page or through our contact page.
A non-race is what you make it. You can be as competitive or as non-competitive as you’d like. It’s a no pressure, almost-no-cost way to get some practice before the racing season really kicks into high gear. We hope to see you there. And again… LET US KNOW if you’re going to be there! Seriously, we can’t read your minds.
