Sunrise Course Information

The 2021 Sunrise 100 Challenge is a 148 nm race in length, with just 5 turns. Designed for speed and to see what you and your plane can really do.

The Course:

Start:

On the start: If the winds dictate a Western departure, the clock will start as you pass the departure end of runway 31. DO NOT turn on course until you have passed the end of the runway.
If the winds dictate an Eastern departure, then you will launch and take your start time at the departure end of runway 13. Prior to take off roll, racers will make a radio call of “Race XX rolling” on 123.000. After the first racer calls rolling, each racer following will hold for a count of 30 before starting their race. As you pass over the runway numbers call "Race xx Start" on 123.000 to verify the start order is still intact, and to make sure the timers get the start time associated with the correct aircraft. Departing the airport traffic area, switch to 122.900 for the first turn.
