Daily Descriptions:

DAY 1 - Saturday, December 14th
On to the main event! Saturday morning will kick off with a grueling 50-miler with a twist. For the first time ever, competitors will be able to ride non-mountain bike trails at the Greenway. This means be prepared to rough it through horse trails (potentially carrying your bike at times), up stairs, and over bridges. There will be no pre-riding the course, and we will not reveal the course map until the Friday of the race. This is not for the faint of heart! Again, this event will have individual category winners but will also count toward UCC status.

On Saturday evening as we wrap up the racing and the band starts warming up (the amazing Todd Johnson and the Revolvers), there will be an opportunity to knock some seconds off your overall time through a variety of goofy mini-competitions. Every mini-competition will allow the top three finishers to knock off a few extra seconds on their overall time. This is a spectator sport and we strongly encourage cheering, heckling and commentary!

Food trucks, a cooling area (complete with a slip-n-slide, ice baths and outdoor showers), plus music, beer, cornhole and more will be available throughout the weekend. Camping will be availableSaturday night so bring your whole family and come prepared to tackle the Greenway Classic.
