Course Maps: Due to racers poaching private property, the Mohican MTB100 may change the start of the race every year and will not reveal the portion of the course from the start through mile 5-6. 100 mile and 100k splits at Aid 3. This is clearly indicated on the map. A large high definition map will be at packet pickup along with maps posted at each aid station during the race.

Extreme Rain Plan B: If the race course should ever receive days of soaking rains, to protect the Mohican trail system, the start of the race will follow a controlled neutral ride from downtown Loudonville through the park roads to SR97. This plan B has been made known to the Mohican State Park, Mohican Forest, Ohio State Patrol, Ashland Sheriff Department, and Course Marshalls.

Course changes may occur between now and race day.

The MTB100 and 100k are both a full loop course that connects many public and private properties. Nearly all of the private property trails are strictly off limit to the public, other than on race day. Please respect the rights of private property owners and do not poach private trails. Long live the Mohican MTB100.

Note to racers regarding horses on the Blue Trail:
Horses may be traveling along a short section of the Blue Trail from the end of the snowmobile trail, crossing SR97 to CR3234, about five miles past aid station one. Although notices have been put up requesting that they avoid this section of trail until 1pm, this is a public horse trail. If you encounter a horse, YOU MUST, stop and walk your bike or pull your bike off the trail to allow them to pass. Horses often view moving bicycles as predators and can panic, causing a real danger to the rider! Be sure to talk to the horseman as you approach and as they pass since this will help put the horses at ease. If an incident occurs because of your neglect of this rule, you may be disqualified.

 

Facilities: Conference Center/Campground with full hookups available and plenty of primitive camping and local motels near. Private hot showers near the finish line.

 

Massage Services available at the finish line inside the Conference center for just $1 per minute. Offering specific massage modalities like sports massage, deep tissue, Swedish
