NO BORING RACE DETAILS



You are invited to join our very first race!

I'm calling it NO BORING RACE.

Here's the idea. 

Everyone starts at the same time in the same location. Participants will then be tasked to visit each checkpoint. The route and order of the checkpoints are up to you. You decide where to pass. Prove you were at the checkpoint by taking a photo of your bike in the area (specific instructions will be given for each area). Then first one to visit all the checkpoints and make it back to the finish line wins.

That's it.

CHECKPOINTS
...

Want to join but are intimidated by the number of checkpoints?


The race will have two categories:

FULL - participants will need to visit all 5 checkpoints.
HALF - participants have the option to choose any 2 checkpoints.

What bike to bring?

It's really up to you, but I suggest something that can handle offroad. Most of the routes have a mixture of roads and off-roads. So something that can handle both ideally.

Prizes

There will be a podium for the fastest riders and all finishers will be part of the raffle. You need to finish to take part in the raffle.

So far, I've gotten commitments from Villain Cycles, Cycle Meeting, Kai Stickers, Turning Wheels, Bike Scouts, Toto's Bike Stand, Flatisboring Adventure Industries and SM City Consolacion. They will all be part of the raffle. Hopefully, I can get more sponsors along the way.

Reminders:
This is a self supported and self navigating race. You will be responsible for yourself and your equipment. Bring all the necessities like helmet, tools, food, money, etc. 

See you at the race!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Can we do the checkpoints in any order?
Yes any order.
...
What is the distance of this race?
It really depends on the route that you decide. Expect to do anywhere from 50-65km and about 1000 meters of climbing.
...
How do I plan the route?
You can use mapping apps to plan it. I usually use a mixture of Komoot, Google Maps and the Strava route planner.
...
What happens if my phone dies or I lose the photos or if the landmark happens to not be there anymore?
If you aren't gunning for the podium, then you just need to prove that you visited the checkpoints somehow. You could show us your Strava route or anything that could prove that you did the route. 
...
If I only do the HALF (2 checkpoints), am I still eligible for the raffle?
Yes, but if there happens to be any big ticket items, those will be raffled to the FULL (5 checkpoints) participants.
...
What is to stop people from submitting photos of their bikes in the checkpoints that were taken on a different day?
Race numbers will be given on race day. The photos will need to include the race numbers on the bike to be eligible.
