RACE #4 - RISE ABOVE SUNRISE UPDATES
VENUE LOCATION AND DETAILS For those of you that have never been to this venue it is a wonderful park in South Florida. This park, which is located in Sunrise, FL, has just over 10 miles of trails of varying degrees of difficulty. There isn't a lot of change in elevation, but the terrain changes frequently from classic singletrack, to rock gardens, to fast flowy berms, or steep technical climbs and descents. So it is sure to be a challenging, fun race for all. The Address for the venue is 16001 W. State Rd. 84, Sunrise, FL 33326. There is a $1.50 per person fee per day to get into the park and there is a gate at the entrance where this fee will be collected.
All registered coaches and student-athletes that will be riding the trails at Markham Park on both Saturday for pre-ride and then Sunday for the race MUST complete the Broward County MTB Waiver and watch a short video to ride the trails. Please print the form, fill out and return to Jackie at the Registration Tent (you can leave the HH# blank). We will have a few extra copies on site but please attempt to print and complete prior to arriving.

4. TEAM DINNER ON SATURDAY! The Lang Family will be hosting the last team dinner at our camper from 5:30-8pm. This is a great opportunity for camaraderie and getting a solid pre-race meal.
