This is one of the 9 races in our BRRC Grand Prix Series. Course begins just north of Sparks Road on NCR Trail, heads north to Monkton Road, turns back south to Paper Mill Road, then back north to finish at Sparks Road. Registration will begin at 7:00 AM. Entry fees are free to our members, $15 for non-members. But- If you register as a member it is free. What a bargain! Donations are appreciated from members. The course is smooth and flat, on the historic (since 1832!) NCR trail. Course begins at the Sparks Road crossing of the NCR Trail (https://brrc.com/ncr-trail-torrey-c-brown-trail, Location P6).
