5000 Feet of Climbing
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we need to postpone until 2021.
At first, we thought we could manage a safer event using a time-trial style of racing. However, that doesn't totally reduce risk of transfer between racers, participants and staff. Additionally, the length of time we'd require paid staffing (police and other safety personnel) for a time-trial format is cost prohibitive; especially with the significant reduction in entries we're seeing as a result of the pandemic. Beyond that, we'd just feel terrible if any of our participants caught this virus as a result of our event. Unfortunately, cancelling this year's event seems the wisest decision.
If you have already registered for this year, please let us know which option you'd prefer:
1) Carry over your entry to next year's race, or
2) Receive a refund.
If you haven't yet registered, please consider donating your planned cost of entry directly to a charity doing great work out there! With furloughs and job losses, I'm sure many charity donations are down. If many of you can donate just your cost of entry, it will help close the gap.
We hope you and yours stay healthy and are able to get some quality riding in during this time! See you all September 25th, 2021!
