Teams of three can preregister and each member will receive a free t shirt. Each team member complete one leg of the race. Awards will be given to the top three teams.

The “Uphill Climb Against Time” will start at 12PM with registration beginning at 11:30AM. The race begins at the City Park Building and riders will head up the notorious “Deadman’s Curve”.

A C&O Canal Family Ride will begin at Railroad Square and continue to Lander and back, about 9 miles. While at Lander tour the historic Lock House and learn the history of the Catoctin Aqueduct. Snacks and water will be provided at no cost to take along on the ride. Bring your own bikes or bike rental is available through River and Trail Outfitters at Railroad Square.
