BCD Racing Course Marking Conventions
Intersections will be marked with triangular yellow arrows.
Always default to the more trafficked trail or road. If you are on a major trail or road, stay on it, and do not get off on any smaller intersecting trails/roads. It is not always possible to mark every possible little trail intersecting a main trail or road. If the course DOES get off a more trafficked road/trail onto a less trafficked road/trail, there will always be some marking indicating this.
No entry fee as it is an informal non-permitted event, but there will be a suggested donation of: adults $20. U23 $10, Juniors $0, or whatever you can afford.
