thanks for posting the pics, the kid's korse should be in really good shape by now as lots of local riders and racers are helping burn it in and make it really obvious and easy to find and follow

Whoops
All the yellow tape ribbons that marked the trail have disappeared!
I’ll get them back up as soon as possible, meanwhile there are some small white trail markers as shown in the photo
Happy trails

All the ribbons are back in place plus a few more markers and even flyers on a few strategic trees to advertise the event. The entire trail is already burned in really well and it should be fast and perfect for practice laps all the way up to race day. Get the kids out there to ride. Thanks to the locals for riding it a lot to prepare it.

Happy trails

Shared the race info and created a calendar event on the New Jersey Juniors Mountain Bikers Facebook page. I copied info directly from bikereg. Let me know if any issues/concerns as I can edit/remove as needed.
the race flyer in the very first post does have an update or two compared to one you grabbed a while back, fixed the link to bike reg to go directly to 9th annual race (instead of 6th? which had a link to 9th.....doh!)

Kid's race update, already almost a dozen kid's pre registered and lots of traffic practicing on the new Kid's Korse

As always, appreciate help from anybody to let families and kids know about this event, the flyer is posted in first comment along with links to race web site and online registration, posting links or printing flyer for your community pool bulletin board, town rec dept, office lunch room etc is totally ok! Sky writing or a getting Elon Musk to tweet about the Grasshopper will earn a complimentary race registration for a kid racer.

Racing is open to any kid's from pre school (we actually see 4 year olds racing, and some have parents who don't have a carbon mtb) thru grade 8 this fall.....

NICA middle school kids are eligible

Race day volunteering encouraged, send an email to hilltopkidsrace@gmail.com or email thru this site

Thanks to Brendan at Cycle Craft for 9 year's of support and race day help
