An all new course with distances of 9, 23 and 28 miles. Maps and elevation profiles coming soon. Racing begins promptly at 10am on Saturday. $1000 pro purse. Inexpensive race fees. USA Cycling-sanctioned. Kickass courses.
Best of all? KIDS RACE FREE! That’s right, anyone 18 or under races at no charge. The only catch is that to race for free, you must be preregistered and have either a one-day ($10) or annual USA Cycling license (available on site).
Maps, start waves, elevation profiles and more coming soon! On site registration available until 9:30am on race day.
Beer Mile & Milk (& Cookies!) Run
4 laps, 4 deliciously cold draughts of Coors or 4 similarly bubbly non-alcoholic facsimiles for the teetotalers (that means non-drinkers). Winners receive a 24-pack of glory, individually packaged in eco-friendly and 100% recyclable 12oz containers. ALL ONLINE ENTRANTS RECEIVE ONE CUSTOM BANQUET BEER MILE TRUCKER HAT. Which will be sweet. And which will TRUMPET your awesomeness from now until the day you shuffle off your mortal coil. Or until you lose it. Or until the day when one of your pals (in a fit of envy-fueled pique & pettiness) steals it from you. Then the awesome transfers to them (with a bit of a karmic ding).
The beer category is open to runners, ball’rs and bon vivants 21 years or older. Solo and 2-person team categories available. Not 21? Don’t like beer? We’ll have fizzy non-alcoholic drinks on hand for non-drinkers. If you’re 18 or under, sign up for the Milk (& Cookies!) Run.
What’s the Milk and Cookies Run, you ask? Great question! It’s a race for kids 18 and under and broken into teams of 2 or 4. After each lap the runners need to consume one glass of milk (chocolate or regular) and one chocolate chip cookie.
