NWEpic Series Rules and Etiquette

  1. Headphones are banned at all races, no exceptions.
  2. Unsportsmanlike conduct is not allowed and will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
  3. Helmets must be worn at all times during the race (CPSC, ASTM, ANSI, OR SNELL)
  4. Cheating/cutting course (intentionally) is an AUTOMATIC DQ. If a rider is injured and cuts course for safety reasons, it's a DNF.
  5. Leave no trace. Drop your garbage at aid stations or better yet pack it out with you.
  6. No dogs on course.
  7. Lapped riders must yield to leaders. Common sense, no exceptions.
  8. Ride within your limits and allow faster, more experienced riders to pass when safe.
  9. A rider overtaking another with the intent to pass should voice “On Your Left”, “On Your Right”, or “When you get time” loud enough to be heard by the slower rider. The slower rider should respond loud enough to be heard. Riders being passed should give as much room to the passer as is safe for their skill level.
  10. In the event multiple riders are vying for the same position, the leading rider does not have to yield his position to the challenging rider. However, a leading rider may not bodily interfere with the intent to impede another rider's progress (e.g., no sticking out your elbows, knees, etc.). Traditional rules of racing apply: The leading rider owns the track. The overtaking rider is responsible for passing. If you are being lapped, you are not the leading rider!
  11. Racers riding a bicycle have the right of way over racers pushing bicycles. Persons pushing their bikes MUST stay out of the way of riders. When practical, racers pushing should stay on the least ridable portion of the path when being passed.
  12. If you break a chain, have a mechanical failure, or fail to negotiate an obstacle or hill, get out of the other racer’s way immediately; do NOT sit in the middle of the trail.
  13. In the event a rider crashes in front of you:
    1. You may go around if you can do so safely
  14. In the event a rider is injured:
    1. You should ask if they need immediate assistance and give it if you are able.
    2. Do not encourage them to move (even if they are lying in the trail blocking ALL traffic). Do not restrain them if they try to move under their own power.
    3. The 1st responder is immediately in charge of every aspect of the situation, and all other riders MUST obey, whether they are told not to go around or to help by giving assistance.
    4. Contact race official immediately and report accident.

Intentionally violating these rules could end with one having anywhere from a stern warning from the race directors to a DQ from race or DQ from entire series without a refund.

Cancellation Policy

All of our races require a lot of advance planning and pre-event expenses (such as permits, insurance, food, beverages, race swag, and awards). Many, if not most, of these expenses are not recoverable. Please read the following policies carefully before signing up for a race.

Participant cancellation

Registering in advance for any race involves some risk. However, we know sometimes things happen and you may not be able to attend a race you signed up for. If you aren't able to participate, please let us know as far in advance as possible. If you cancel more than 30 days before the race date, you can choose either a 50% refund or 50% credit for a future NWEpic Series race of similar value. There will be no refunds for later cancellations.

Transfer to another race

Another option is to transfer your registration to another NWEpic Series race.

Race cancellation

Our goal is to provide an enjoyable, safe race experience. However, sometimes unusual conditions (weather and other) may require that, for your health and safety, we cancel a race. We don't want to cancel a race and will do so only if the safety risk is great. While we can't list every possible factor, some possibilities are: extreme heat, extreme cold, hazardous air quality, unanticipated road/trail closures, dangerous animals on the course, or other natural or human-caused acts.

Once the decision has been made to cancel a race, we will do our best to contact every registered participant as far in advance as possible. However, the very nature of many of these conditions may affect our ability to do so.

All racers pre-registered for a cancelled race will receive either a 50% refund or 50% credit towards a future NWEpic Series race of similar value.
