CRCA Club Race #1 Instructions

Tomorrow is the first race in the Lucarelli & Castaldi Club Series. We have spoken to NYC Parks and they are actively clearing the park drives of debris. Precipitation is expected to end by midnight but the roads may be wet and it may be windy in the morning so please use caution in the Park and during the race.

A note to our marshals: NYC Parks strictly enforces our marshal requirements. Races cannot start until 15 minutes AFTER all marshals are at their assigned posts. If marshals arrive late (or do not show) the race will be delayed and/or cancelled. Please refer to the Marshaling Instructions and Marshaling Policy for addition information.
