Hare and Hounds Course
Hare and Hounds are conducted on closed course tracks which can vary from 4 to 10+ miles in length. The terrain chosen for these events is wooded and fairly rugged in order to test the riders' skills and endurance. The majority of the course consists of a wooded, single and double width trail, with occasional pasture and sand crossings. An event may incorporate a short portion of a pre-existing motocross track. The natural terrain tests the riders' abilities to navigate through obstacles such as creek beds, logs, hills, mud, rocks and ruts.
Hare and Hounds Results
Our races are normally conducted over a 3 hours period.
The results are sorted by the amount of laps completed and by how quickly you come in after the 3 hours. If any rider comes through even 1 second short of the 3 hours they would have to complete another full lap to qualify as a finisher. For example Rider 1 has 13 laps and a time of 3:14:25 meaning 3 hours, 14 minutes and 25 seconds; Rider 2 has also completed 13 laps but has a time of 3:17:50, meaning Rider 1 wins by 3 minutes and 25 seconds.
Extreme Enduro Hare Scramble
This is a stupidly hard course, sometimes consisting of manmade obstacles, tyres, cars, skips, logs, rocks, water hazards. Designed o test an experienced rider to the limit, and sometimes beyond. Normally run under a Hare and Hounds format. Track n Trail’s answer to an extreme endure is Destination Portland, which in made entirely based on natural obstacles, set half in an abandoned quarry, and half in a modern working quarry. This year saw competitors claiming it to be the best extreme enduro in the country, and some described it as a mini Erzberg.
These are set on an enduro course normally around the 3 mile mark with woods sections and open going, usually some grassy going and maybe the occasional scramble tracks thrown in. These offer a great opportunity for sharing fun with friends out on the track, a free ride with the land owner’s support and without the pressure of racing.
Practice days are held under ACU guide lines and with an ACU commercial Enduro Coach on hand if needed.
These days are becoming very popular with beginners and riders looking for quality bike time, track opens at 10am and closes at 3.30-4pm. To sign up go to the events page and click the free ride shield.
Sprint Scrambles are set on a shorter course than Hare and Hounds and are two 1 hour heats per class, with one hour between each race. Half of the contestants race at any one time whilst the other half has a one hour break. The youth do one 1.5 hour race after all 4 of the adult heats. This type of racing increases riders speed, and requires a lot less stamina than Hare and Hounds.
Sprint Scramble Results
From each heat they are calculated in the same way as hare and hounds, but the points are combined between the 2 heats. Where points are tied, the higher placed of the first heat takes the position.
