The Hemet Registration
Pre and Late registration Check-In is at the Motel 6,
3885 W. Florida Ave., Hemet. Registration is available from 5 to 9 PM Friday (April 14)
and 3:30 to 6:00 AM Saturday (April 15) for both the double and single centuries. Late
registration has a $20.00 late fee added to the double century or a $10.00 late fee added to the
century fees after March 26, 2023 and on the day of the event April 15, 2023.
The double century has a twenty-hour time limit. Since the original Hemet DC started in
1965 had a 24 hour time limit that was changed to an 20 hour soft time limit. All riders
that complete the Double have and always will be counted as a Triple completion if they finish
within the 24 hour period. "And yes I and one or two other staff members have helped and
waited for those riders until 3 or 4 AM."
Both the first single and double century riders can start between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM.
All of these riders must leave by 6:00 AM. The double century closes at 11:00 PM
(Soft Close). No double century rider is allowed to attempt or start the second loop after
2:30 PM This rule has held up for 42 years of the 38 years that Jim Watrous has been its
director. This rule was also used in 1982 through 1985 when Ruth Barnes was the director.
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 (but not before) 9:00 AM (This is an
absolute earliest time for the second century - no exceptions).
Please Note that all
riders must check in and either pickup their pre-registration materials or do a late
registration Friday evening or by no later than 6:00 AM Saturday morning.
