Interview with Alan Kohl of

Alan, how long does it take competitors to complete the Baja Mexico 1000 race?

"The competitors of the Baja 1000 off-road race are given an allotted amount of time to complete the race. The time allowed to complete a race depends on the length of the course.

Here are examples:

Nov 2009 (this year):  Course length 672.85 miles. Time limit to finish: 31 hours.

Nov 2007:  Course length 1,296 miles. Time limit to finish:  53 hours (finished in Cabo San Lucas)

Nov 2005:  Course length 709 miles. Time limit to finish: 30 hours

Nov 2004:  Course length 1016.13 miles. Time limit to finish: 40 hours (finished in La Paz)

Nov 2000:  To celebrate the millennium, the race was 2,000 miles long. I don’t recall how many hours they had to finish, but it was something like 80 hours. They finished in Cabo San Lucas."
