Volunteers Needed:

Great kids races are only possible with great volunteers! We need some STRONG SPOKE parent volunteers to help set up the night before the race and to help with registration, starting line, finish line, and tear down on race day. The Gators coaching staff will cover all volunteer positions on the course and will be organized separately.

Awards Ceremony & Race Results:

Live results will be available through Webscorer once the racing begins! 

When all waves from a Rider Group have completed the course, those racers will gather at the podium to celebrate the overall top finishers in the category, receive their medals, and pose for a photo op. The podium is in front of the Gators Trailer (see venue map). 

Please read our Race Series FAQs for more information on racing in “waves,” how finish times are recorded and ranked, and how podium winners are determined.

All results from the Gators Race Series will be celebrated and archived, along with photos, on the Series Results page.
