Bogg For Africa: 8 Hr XC Endurance

Bike Monkey is sponsoring an 8 Hr XC Endurance race in support of Food for the Hungry and their ongoing AIDS relief effort in Africa: "This charity event will raise funds to support medical and educational projects designed to help with the terrible pandemic that is racing across the African continent." The race will be held in Bogg State Demonstration Forest (near Cobb, CA) and feature a LeMans style mass start for both solo and 3 person team relay categories. Dinner and a T-shirt are also included with your entry fee. For a good look at the Bogg Forest trails, check out Peter Fagerlin's movie and the MTBR reviews.
Event: Bogg For Africa
Dates: March 25th, 2006
Location: Boggs State Demo Forest (Cobb, CA) [ MAP ]
Competition: Endurance (8 hour)
Cost: $45 (pledges also accepted)
License: TBD (NORBA is a sponsor, so it's a good bet you'll need their license)
This sounds like a great race for a great cause. Unfortunately, they've chosen an already crowded weekend with the CHDH, CCCX and Pre-Otter on the schedule. Tough choices.
