Neches Wilderness Race and TCKRA Aluminum State Championships
August 6, 2016 @ 9:00 am$40
This year’s TCKRA State Aluminum Race will be a part of the events at The Neches Wilderness Race. The course is 22 miles and should prove to be a challenge! This venue has been described by some of the best as UNPREDICTABLE, CHALLENGING, TOUGH and FUN! Registration will begin at 7:30am. $40 per person (for other classes and race day registration fees, please visit the webpage). Food and drink at the finish. There will be a pre-race briefing at about 8:30am with race start around 9:00am. This race will be held in conjunction with The Neches Wilderness Race, with their leisure class starting roughly an hour prior to the aluminum race. This should add to the challenge as well as give an opportunity for those new to the sport to see some of the competition.
Holiday Inn Express on HWY 79 in Palestine has offered discounted rates for any racers needing to come in the night before or stay a night after the race.
