Rail Racing

We are introducing a new competition to Unicon 19, rail racing. The object is to ride a 50m rail, with the fastest rider winning. You can enter the rail race under the ‘urban’ competitions.

Rules:

  • Fastest rider to ride the full 50m wins
  • Riders who do not manage to ride the full 50m are ranked according the distance they rode
  • Rides less than 5m are disqualified
  • Competitors have 2 attempts

Acknowledgement
We would like to thank Robin Dunlop for creating and setting up the Unicon 19 registration system. He is the hard-working data guy you will have seen at previous Unicons!

See you in Seoul

Thanks for posting this. I looked at the hotel website and had a difficult time figuring out where it is via google maps. The map provided by the hotel is not clear if you are not from the area. Is there public transport available from the hotel to the venues? Also, are reservations handled through Unicon instead of directly with the hotel?
