12 Hours of Cranky Monkey - Schedule & Course Info

Saturday, 6/21/2014 - Schaeffer Farms Trail System, Germantown, MD

Solo racers and teams of 2 or 3 will complete as many laps as possible in a 12 hour period, from 8am-8pm. There is also a 3 hour option where solo racers complete as many laps as possible in a three hour period, from 8:30am-11:30am. Team members alternate laps in relay fashion. An electronic e-punch timing system, similar to chip timing, will be used to accurately calculate lap times.

The VERY fun and wonderfully maintained trails at Schaeffer Farms offer twisty single-track, open field riding, stream crossings, log ramps, and several steep hills. The 9 mile course will be very similar to the course used at the Cranky Monkey Series races held at Schaeffer from 2010-2012. The lap will begin and end in the 'pit area' which will be located in the huge grassy fields of the grounds of the privately managed Button Farm Living History Center off Black Rock Road. Racers will transition in this pit area.

On both Fri 6/20/14 and Sat 6/21/14, racers will be permitted to park and camp in the huge grassy pit areas located near the start/finish of the race course. There is plenty of room for parking and camping at your pit area. There is no extra charge for camping. Portojohns will be placed throughout the pit areas. Showers will not be available. For those not camping, there are plenty of hotels nearby.

Semper Fi Quantico: After 7 wonderful years of racing the 12 Hr of Cranky Monkey on the Quantico Marine Corps Base, we needed to change venues because the fields we use for pitting and staging are going to be under construction for the next few years. We will miss the incredible trails at Quantico and the support of the Marines. Semper Fi! Luckily, with Schaeffer, we have an excellent new venue to support this event. Schaeffer offers awesome trails, a convenient location, huge transition/pit areas, and the ability to camp on-site before and after the event.
