The Hemet Event
Double and Single Centuries
The double century is a giant figure eight type route composed of two 100-mile loops (centuries). The start/finish and lunch are at the center of the figure eight at MOTEL 6. The 100-mile option is available for either loop. However, the first loop is a Great Beginners Century. The first loop has 3506 feet of total accumulated elevation gain spread over the entire 107-mile loop. The second loop has about 3431 feet of total accumulated elevation gain, in which 1100 feet of climbing occurs in the first 13 miles of the 97 mile loop.
The double century has a eighteen-hour soft time limit. The double century riders can start between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM. The double century closes at 10:00 PM soft limit, but completion is key and riders are allowed to get credit after 10 pm. No double century rider is allowed to attempt or start the second loop after 2:30 PM.
Single Century riders can start the first loop between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM or they can start the second loop between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
