808 404 202 km

The route is divided into four sections of about 100 km each. Whether they are riding solo or with a team, participants must complete each section before going on to the next. At the end of each section, all participants will go through an intermediate station (or timing station), where they can do their team relays or rest before resuming the ride. Participants in the 808 Challenge must complete the route twice. Along the way, there will be water stations every 50 km.

Relay Points/Timing Stations:

Each section of the course terminates at a timing station zone through which participants must cross. The stations are also points at which teams of 2 or 4 do their relay changes. Since the route comprises two loops – one north, one south – there are three separate timing stations/transition zones (for teams) along the way.
