NYC Parks strictly enforces our marshal requirements. As recently noted in other communications, we’ve seen an alarming uptick in no-shows for marshal assignments.
Races cannot start until 15 minutes AFTER all marshals are at their assigned posts. If marshals arrive late, do not show or are not at their precise assigned post we may lose our race permits. Teams with assigned marshals that do not show will have to forfeit another team member to serve as a marshal if there’s a marshal deficit.
Check-in is at the Boathouse while Rambles construction is on-going. If you are late to registration, you will not be able to race. If you do not check in and we see you in a race, you will receive a disqualification for the race and will be suspended for the following race.
If you are a CRCA member with a Race membership, please remember that you need to bring exact change to the race. Our volunteers at check-in will not be carrying change.
Podium ceremony will be at Rambles. Please report to Rambles after your race if you believe you placed within the Top 3.
We want to ensure that the registration process goes smoothly for all. Therefore, new number pickup is limited to before 5:40. If you need a new number, please show up early otherwise you will not be able to race. You must show your USAC license.
If you need to replace a lost number, numbers will be available for $20 at check-in. Similarly, please allow for more time if you need to replace and pin a lost number.
After Club Series races, riders have been reported by NYC Parks for riding backward on the Central Park loop and/or riding on walking paths. This conduct threatens the existence of our races and will be subject to an immediate DQ and possible suspension.
The CRCA Club Series now features professional results. Results will be posted at the finish line, posted on CRCA.net, and uploaded to USAC. The CRCA Club Series may now be utilized for USAC upgrade points.
After speaking to our results team, we decided that using a form makes more sense over the 15 minute in-person protest period. If you have any questions about your placement in a Club Race, please use the form linked here going forward. After results are posted, there will be a 72 hour window to request revisions to the USAC results.
Any riders that are dropped from the main peloton and finish their race alone are encouraged to check in with the finish line staff.
