During summer months, trails dry faster but still need time to recover from significant rainfall. Give 'em some time!
Note: Trail status is always up to date and accurate. The date stamp simply refers to the last date it changed, not the last time it was updated. If it reads the trails are open and the date stamp reads a week ago that tells you the trails have been open for a week. When trails are closed they are closed to everyone including foot traffic.
Want to get text updates anytime the status is changed?
We created an IFTTT Applet that allows you to receive a text when the trail status is changed and it is real-time.

With the rainy and unpredictable weather that we have been experiencing lately, please keep your eye on our website for any cancellations. If the event has to be canceled due to rain or severe weather, then we will post here on our website by 4pm on Thursday. In the event of a cancellation, the TT will be rescheduled for July 26th.
If you have already been assigned a number plate, then please remember to bring it with you if possible. Online registration will close at midnight on July 18th, but you can register onsite from 5pm until 7pm or until all spots are filled. Please have your SORBA/IMBA membership ID or proof of membership available with you. All participants will sign in at the table in the parking lot, and then proceed to the Quehl Holler push line up to South Loop, where there will be a taped off lane to line up. Racers will sign in at the timing registration table and remain in line until the start of the course. The line will be staged first come first serve, and you will be lined up in the order that you register and line up. If you plan to do a warm-up lap, then you must do so before 5:30 or warm up on another trail. South Loop will be closed at 5:30 sharp to clear the course. Warm-up laps will not be permitted on South Loop after 5:30. Please be respectful of the timing system and others in line at the finish by trying not to kick up dirt or mud as it may be this week. If you have any questions, then please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
