Here is a link to the RUSA Dart rules page: http://www.rusa.org/teamrando.html. Be sure to look the rules over before designing your route. If you have any questions, please contact Foster.

Each Dart team member must fill out the online entry form and sign the waiver. The waivers must be mailed to Foster before April 4, 2016.

Transportation: The finish location is near the Moorpark Amtrak / Metrolink station. Unfortunately the number of trains available Saturday night is not good. The easiest way to get around this is to drive to the station Friday evening, drop your car off and take Amtrak or Metrolink back home or to your start destination. Upon finishing, if you don’t feel like riding the three miles to the station, we can shuttle your team driver to the station from the finish location.

Route Suggestions: In terms of making your course and riding by the rules of the Dart, this is a good tune up for those still on the fence for the Fleche coming up on April 23rd. Be sure to plan a receipt  stop 15.5 or more miles before the finish. From Greg’s house that could be, western Camarillo, Cal State Univ Channel Islands (CSUCI) to the south, Agoura or western San Fernando Valley to the east, Piru or Santa Paula to the north and eastern Ventura to the west.
