Regional Circuit | Off-Circuit | Training & Rec Classes
Competitive classes may form part of our Regional Circuit (see list in Regional Circuit Regulations) and may include recreational or training classes. Events including these types of classes must adhere to MAHDS Rules & Requirements for Participants and for Event Organizers. Results from competitive classes are eligible for inclusion in our annual points calculations if they are part of a Regional Circuit (dryland or snow). MAHDS will assist with logistics and compliance, ensuring event organizers are well-supported and set up to provide the best quality of events in our region.
These classes are all about fun! Engaging aspects such as costumes and fun awards (such as closest guesstimate) are highly encouraged!
Organizers interested in offering a fun-run class should familiarize themselves with the Rules & Requirements for Non-Competitive Classes and MAHDS Code of Conduct prior to applying for fun run sanctioning.
