Where do I register?

Are the Nationals run similar to the Regionals?

I’ve never attended a Nationals Championship event, only a Regional Championship. Just a bigger event with more people attending, and from further away?

That’s a pretty good summary, however, there are several differences from our Regionals, which are a Divisional (Central Division) event. Yes, more people will attend from all over the country, but we also organize the competition into Age Groups: A (Men in Age Classes 1-5), B (Men in Age Classes 6-8), C (all Women), and D (Men in Age Classes 9+). So, there are essentially 4 races at Nationals. You race against others in your Age Group. Beyond that, there are Overall Awards for Age Classes. You must race in a certain number of events to be considered for the Overall (this is still TBD which races will count). There is also the highly coveted Divisions Cup award. For each Discipline, there are also medals given out by Age Class and Gender. The competitive spirit and excitement of the races along with social opportunities are bigger than Regionals. 

Am I allowed to just sign up for 2 or 3 days of races?

I can only attend a few days. Yes, you can attend as many events as you wish but know that this may impact your ability to qualify for the Overall Award for your Age Class. 

Did I read correctly that it runs from Tuesday to Saturday (no racing on Sunday)?

Yes, there is no racing on Sunday. Our final banquet is Saturday night and we traditionally leave Sunday as a travel day. 

Would I use my Regionals/Division bib or would this be a new bib?

We have separate bibs for Nationals that will be assigned to you, and you will return it after your last event. No need to bring your Regionals/Division bib.
