Hare scrambles - 3 hour heads up race through trails, MX, grasstracks, fields, etc. they use a mass start with one or more classes starting per wave. Typically the course will be about 4 to 15 miles long. You race as many laps as possible in the given timeframe. The number of hours raced will vary by class and promoting club/organization. You finish up the lap you are riding after the race time has expired. The rider who finished the most laps in the shortest amount of time wins.

Enduro - An endurance and timekeeping competition. Usually 75 to 120 miles in length. Depending on the available terrain, they are typically run exclusively on trails. Objective is to maintain a given speed average, not going too slow or too fast and hitting the secret checkpoints at the correct time. Points are lost for being early or late, low score wins. The clubs usually try to wear you out physically and mentally so you rack up the points.

GNCC - Grand National Cross Country. This is a specific race series on the east coast. The race format is the same as a hare scrambles.

Hare & Hound - A desert race with a mass start. Fastest rider to cover the 100 or so miles wins.
