Do you plan to enter more than one of our races in 2016? Consider buying one of our race packages now! Again this year, we are offering our racers a chance to cut racing costs in 2016 by offering gift certificates, available now, that allow racers to purchase "package deals" on specific types of races. You can purchase these certificates for a friend or for yourself! Choose the "2-Du" Package, the "Tri" Package, or any of the other package options - whatever suits your racing preference. Click here for more details.  
Quick charge members - if you selected the Quick charge payment option during the previous racing season, you will not have to provide any checking or credit card account information, unless the card has expired or you have changed checking accounts.  
What can you say about them? You've got to love 'em! There would be no races anywhere without sponsors. So we at NCN Racing are proud to be associated with the individual and corporate sponsors that have decided to team with us for the 2016 Rat Race season, and we thank them all! For a complete list of our Presenting Sponsors, with links to their sites on the Web, please click here.
