The Mohican MTB100 is ON for May 30
Posted on: 19 May 2020

The Mohican MTB100 is ON for May 30! Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has taken steps to open the state of Ohio. Local campgrounds are now open and the Mohican State Park campground is set to re-open on May 21st. Racers have been made aware that the race is still waiting on a park permit but will exclude the state forest trails if a permit is not received by May 30. The Park/Forest trails account for about 24% of the course meaning the 100 mile and 100k races will be effectively shorter if our permit is not approved on time.

This week, The Mohican 100 shared details of its mitigation plan with registered racers. The race will be abiding by social distancing guidelines to insure the race is safe for both racers and volunteers. Some examples of the changes to this years race include: There will be no downtown mass start. Racers will be assigned start times and depart from Mohican Adventures in small groups every one to two minutes using electronic timing. Aid stations will serve pre packaged and single serve items only. The post race party including expo and food vendors has been cancelled to prevent grouping. Racers may still register but online only at bikereg.com. There will be no registration offered at packet pickup. International Racers have been deferred and racers are able to defer to 2021.

April 19 Race at Mohican Cancelled
Posted on: 3 Apr 2020

Yesterday, Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine, extended the stay at home recommendation until April 30. As a result, we have been informed by Ohio State Parks that all parks will remain closed until May 15. As a result, the April 19 race at Mohican State Park is cancelled. However, we are still planning to hold the OMBC Race at Vultures Knob and the Mohican MTB100 on May 30 and the Mohican Trail Run on June 20-21 as planned with guidance from our medical partner, University Hospital of Ashland. It is highly likely that the upcoming OMBC race at Vulture's Knob will be managed as a time trial with online registration only to avoid contact and keep everyone as safe as possible.
