The Seattle Cyclocross Series is sanctioned by USA Cycling and you will need a USAC license to race.
Cat 1/2/3 (juniors/seniors/masters) will need an annual license. The easiest way to obtain or renew on is online, HERE.
They will also be available for purchase on race day (but online is the best option). Cat 4 racers (all ages) single-speed racers, and junior-event racers have the option to purchase a one-day license in person on race day for $10.
You will be able to purchase a license when you register online.
