Paranormal 2024

The Paranormal is back for 2024!  Join us for another edition of this classic, 6-hour endurance mountain bike race.  The Charlottesville Racing Club is pledging to donate *all* proceeds from the race go to the Toy Lift, a local charity whose aim is to get kids on bikes in Virginia.  Please consider adding an additional donation on top of your race entry fee to support this worthwhile cause.  There will also be a silent auction during the race so bring your checkbooks!

Competitors have 6 hours to do as many laps of our outstanding 8+ mile singletrack loop as possible.  For team/duo categories, each group will have one participant out on course at a time.  It is up to the teams themselves to determine the order and number of laps each racer will do.   All categories will start together at 4pm. Solo riders and teams can start a new lap anytime before the 10pm cutoff.  No new laps can begin after 10pm!!!

Racers who show up in costume will get a head start on the rest of the field.  The first few laps will be during daylight hours, but once the sun goes down lights will be required so be ready! The course itself is *not* illuminated.  You must have lights on your bike and/or your person. Free camping is available on site.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase during the race.

Same-day registration will be available, but will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.  Participants are strongly encouraged to pre-register.

The Paranormal will be chip-timed by the good folks at Commonwealth Timing.
