Annual Costume Race
The highlight of Surf City All Hallow's Cross is the COSTUME RACE! This is by far the best race to spectate and participate in, so we encourage everybody to join the fun. Put on your best costume and ride one fun lap of the course. There will be a podium with prizes for best costume! Costs only $10.
Free Entry for First Timers!
If this is your very first cyclocross race, we're inviting you to join the fun for FREE! You read that correctly: your race is free if you've never raced cyclocross before. First-timers can sign up by sending us a message via the contact form with name, birthday and contact info, or by just showing up on race day.
Kids Race for Free!
In keeping with another tradition, kiddos get to race on a shortened lap around the expo in front of their adoring fans. Parents are invited to ride the lap with their kids if they'd like. You can just show-up at the start line to join the fun!
Surf City is a community event and we can't do this without your help! There are a lot of volunteer opportunities available. Please consider lending a hand, you can reach out via the contact form.

Ride what you brought. Most of our courses favor a cross bike, but to minimize barriers of entry to the sport, mountain bikes are allowed, particularly in the beginner categories.
Racers are self-categorized based on age and gender, and categories divide riders into fitness and ability levels.
Typically beginners to the sport. You're either completely new to the sport or have ridden a cross bike on training rides, but haven't competed yet.USAC cat 4/5 equivalent.
Intermediate to advanced racers in both skillset and fitness. Also considered the "Working Person's" category because the reality of life gets in the away of being competitive at the A level. USAC cat 3 equivalent.
The fittest, most experienced riders race this category.USAC cat 1/2 equivalent.
Aged 9 and under, kids usually race a subset of the main race loop, and may do multiple laps depending on course layout. Everything from push bikes to miniature cross bikes with 24" sewups are seen in the kids race, and prizes of fun bags with Clif Kids bars and the occasional medal (no cash or start money, sorry) are awarded to all.
Riders can race "up" in category, ie, Masters can race in groups younger than their own, and Juniors can ride with older age groups. All age groups can race in the Open A, B, and C groups.
