WORS is proud to introduce a new racing format to Midwest mountain bikers. Three of WORS largest venues will be utilized for this new series. These off-road areas will support laps of greater than 9 miles in length making them appropriate for marathon distance events. The USA Cycling and UCI definition of a marathon mountain bike event is 60-100 kilometers (37 to 62 miles). WORS distances will be 37 to 42 miles for Sport and above level competitors.
TheWORS Marathon Seriesis the perfect series for riders who are unable to commit to WORS 12 race series and those looking for racing fun that will keep them motivated throughout the summer months. Courses for these events aim to be fast rolling, safe, forest adventures and provide a transition from less technical off-road riding for riders of all abilities. Each event will have a shorter distance option for beginning and Citizen racers as well as a Citizen Youth race (6-8 miles) for juniors 12 and under.
Further details on each of the events withinWORS Marathon Series are coming to the events pages soon. Specifics related to overall scoring of the three race Marathon Series can be found in the WORS Guidelines.
