For the full Arizona Trail Race the following rule is
* You must carry your disassembled bike from the south to north rim
of the Grand Canyon. Absolutely no riding or pushing (rolling) of the
bicycle is allowed.
If you are caught rolling or pushing your bike you will be disqualified
and banned from all future events. No exceptions.
State Trust Land Permit Required: The AZTR 750 route crosses State Trust
Land (off the AZT itself) which means all riders must purchase a recreational
permit. They are available at the link below, and can be purchased / delivered
online. Please note that AZT 300 riders do not need a permit, since there is an
easement for the AZT wherever it travels on State Trust Land. The 750 requires
a permit due to using roads and trails that are not AZT, but on state trust.
Note from Grand Canyon National Park: Groups of 11 - 30 individuals day
hiking through the canyon as part of this Race will need to obtain a Special
Use Permit through our office. You can find details about our permit
requirements at the following link: http://www.nps.gov/grca/learn/management/sup.htm
QUESTIONS? Better to ask before the race starts.
