I am looking to go to Austin this year and give Nationals a shot but I have some questions about the different races. Both National Champs and Non-Champs are available. Besides the obvious differences expressed in the titles, what are the differences?
For those who have gone before, do they fill up quick?
There aren't normal categories for the Masters Nats. It's done in 5 year age groups so if you're racing age is 32 you'd be in the 30-34 race. If there are more people registered for a cat than allowed, they'll have heats or timed course runs to sort out who races the final. Hope that makes sense.
