Race Rules

  • All participants MUST have their American Triple-T race number singlet on at all times during the bike and run.
  • NO altering the singlet in any way is allowed.
  • Sportsmanship will be imperative during this long hard weekend. You'll be racing side by side folks in formats many have not raced in. Be careful and be a good sport. Unsportsmanlike conduct will NOT be tolerated.
  • HFP's medical team will have final say in allowing a participant to continue in a race if deemed necessary.
  • Some of the roads will NOT be closed on the bike course. Ride like you do in any training ride and follow all traffic laws (stay to the far right, don't cut the tangents, etc...). Police and rangers will be at every intersection to give participants the right of way.
  • All courses will be marked clearly with cones and signs. However, it is the responsibility of each participant to know the course.
  • Please be aware that we are guests at this beautiful park and there will be a zero tolerance policy for littering. Don't even think about throwing your trash or empty bottles into the state forest. Not only will you be DQ'ed but you will get a $500.00 fine on top of that.
  • Participants are expected to heed directions and instructions of all race officials and local authorities.
  • Abusive treatment of volunteers or others are grounds for immediate disqualification and will result in participant being prevented from participating in future HFP events.
  • If a participant MUST withdraw from a race, please notify race officials immediately.
  • HFP Racing reserves the right to make rule/course changes at anytime.
