Changes & Additions:

We have added an Intermediate SS category which will race a shorter distance than the Expert SS category.

We have also adjusted the beginner and intermediate age groups so they align, making it easier to upgrade and remain in the same age group (19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+).

With the increasing number of junior races, we’ve broken the categories into 2 year age groups and added a 6-8 category. This will help shrink the gap between kids on the younger/older side of their respective categories. Junior categories will consist of 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14.

Lastly, we will again offer a discount (excluding juniors, you only pay $20 per race) when registering for the entire MBAA series before Jan. 12 2017 ($200 for 6 races + a free t-shirt).
