Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We are short on time this week, so let’s get right to it.
Online Registration Closes on the Tuesday (TONIGHT) Before Each Race
Online registration through the Pit Zone closes at midnight on the Tuesday prior to each race. All student athletes must be practice-ready in the Pit Zone to race and to pay for race fees onsite at any of the races.

Rules Clarifications for Non-Racers on Course
Our first race at Magic Mountain was a HUGE success. We saw a big increase in the number of racers and along with those additional racers came a ton of coaches, parents, siblings and spectators. For the most part everyone followed the rules and we didn’t have any incidents on course, however there were a few close calls. With the focus on racer safety and providing a fair “playing field” for all racers, the IICL rules committee has approved clarification on the wording in the NICA rules related to non-racers on course.
NICA Rule 9.1 Reads:
Due to the above mentioned safety concerns with coaches, spectators and student-athletes being on course at the same time as our racers, the IICL has approved the following definitions to clarify rule 9.1 above.
“Course” – Any trail, road or any other area specifically marked as part of the route used for our event. Adjacent trails, roads, etc. that are not part of the course can be used to access the “sidelines” of our course for the purpose of spectating or coaching.
So what does this mean for you?
1) At no time should anyone cross the course in the infield area. The only permissible way to cross the course throughout the infield area is via designated course crossings. Regardless of where on course you are, there is no crossing through course tape and/or over fencing.
3) Any marked trails, roads, etc. that are being used as part of the race course cannot be used by anyone other than racers or race officials. If you wish to get out on course to spectate and/or coach, you must use other trails and roads that are not part of the live race course.
We understand the enforcement of this rule may cause an inconvenience for some spectators/coaches. However, our priority is to provide a safe and fair course for the racers and the strict enforcement of this rule and these IICL approved definitions will help us in doing so. In addition, at certain venues, we will look at providing short windows of time when coaches and spectators can use specific sections of the course.
Thank you for your understanding and compliance with this rule.
