An RTA tradition sponsored by the River Valley Mountain Bike Association !
Two-person teams on bicycles face off! One team member travels as fast as possible while the other travels as slow as possible. The "turtle" on each team is restricted to a small area and once started, cannot put their feet on the ground. The "hare" will simultaneously race around a short circle track with obstacles while riding a children's bike!
Teams are eliminated if the Tortoise puts their foot down or leaves the Tortoise box. Time is restricted to a maximum on 3 minutes. If teams make it to 3 minutes than those with the most laps wins!
WORLD championship starts immediately following the bike parade.
Stop by the festival HQ to sign up --- Space is limited!
Trophy goes to the World Champions.
