If you would like to enjoy the camaraderie and the great North Georgia roads that MBCA Peachtree will present on the October Mountain Run, but would like a bit of precision driving competition along the way, please consider entering the MBCA Peachtree October Mountain Rally.
This is a sister event to our October Mountain Run to Brasstown Bald and will be held simultaneously with the same start and end locations. Both groups will meet at Brasstown bald for a socially distant picnic lunch (that you bring). If you would like to participate in the TSD Rally, please sign up for BOTH events to make sure you get all communications to the group. Please go to msreg.com/Oct-Mountain-Run-Brasstownbald to sign up.
The rally will consist of a series of Timed Portions of the October Mountain Run route. We will use the same route, but a different set of instructions. The location of the “Flying Starts” (starting points) of the Timed Portions will be given in the instructions, along with the average speed you are expected to maintain. The use of “Flying Starts” means you don’t have to arrive at the start of a Timed Portion at a specific time; timing will start when you cross the Flying Start. The Timed Portions will contain a series of hidden checkpoints where your arrival time will be recorded and compared to the perfect arrival time (based on the miles traveled and the specified average speed), with points assessed for time early or late. Lowest score wins. In most cases, no route following will be required, the challenge will be staying on time on the twisty mountain roads. Segments outside the Timed Portions will have no timing requirements and the participants will be able to enjoy the roads and scenery.
Participants will need to download and run the “Richta Competitor App” during the event in order for your checkpoint arrival times to be recorded. Details for downloading, installing and running the app can be found on the MBCA Peachtree Rally Resources webpage. No other equipment is required, though paper and pencil and an calculator may be useful. There are no rally equipment limitations for this event and all participants will run in a single class
The General Instructions, Route Instructions and your assigned car number will be provided by e-mail prior to the event. It is recommended these be printed out and brought to the event.
Please visit the MBCA Peachtree Rally Resources page, which contains links to instructive videos from our TSD Rally School, and links to the presentations, along with the instructions for downloading, installing and running the Richta Competitor app and other resources.
We hope to see you on the route for what promises to be a great day on great roads with great people!
