8.5 Mile Race:
Starting out, racers will climb uphill over 4.25 miles heading south. Once reaching the turn around point, racers will enjoy a fast push down for 4.25 miles. Depending on experience, racers will be able to reach 20+ mph on the push down. You will have to work for that speed but it is obtainable. Being able to foot break is highly recommended for this race.

5K Race:
This race is an all-out sprint. From Haller Park, racers will ride north 3.1 miles to the starting line. The majority of this race is a slight decline in elevation, which makes for a fast 5k.

One-Mile Kids Race:
FREE to enter. Kids of all ages are welcome. Racers will ride 1 mile north of Haller park to the starting line. We will have a volunteer riding at the back of the pack; no riders left behind, and one volunteer riding among the kids for assistance if needed. Parents you are also welcome to join your kids, but we ask that no help is given other than moral support. The top 3 kid winners will get a prize and also stand on the podium.

14.5 Mile Race:
Racers will start at Haller Park Bridge, ride north 7.25 miles. Once reaching the Nakashima Barn, racers will turn around and head south 7.25 miles. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the 30-mile long Centennial Trail. Often on this ride, you will encounter deer, rabbits, eagles, lizards, frogs, slugs and caterpillars. This is truly an over-the-river, through the woods, over a farm, to a barn…and back…kind of race. Enjoy the views. Race hard!
