The Mohican MTB100 is ON for May 30! Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has taken steps to open the state of Ohio. Local campgrounds are now open and the Mohican State Park campground is set to re-open on May 21st. Racers have been made aware that the race is still waiting on a park permit but will exclude the state forest trails if a permit is not received by May 30. The Park/Forest trails account for about 24% of the course meaning the 100 mile and 100k races will be effectively shorter if our permit is not approved on time.
This week, The Mohican 100 shared details of its mitigation plan with registered racers. The race will be abiding by social distancing guidelines to insure the race is safe for both racers and volunteers. Some examples of the changes to this years race include: There will be no downtown mass start. Racers will be assigned start times and depart from Mohican Adventures in small groups every one to two minutes using electronic timing. Aid stations will serve pre packaged and single serve items only. The post race party including expo and food vendors has been cancelled to prevent grouping. Racers may still register but online only at bikereg.com. There will be no registration offered at packet pickup. International Racers have been deferred and racers are able to defer to 2021.
