Each Corporate team will be able to create it’s own fundraising page of the charity of their choice. We will track fundraising progress, with the top 3 fundraising teams being recognized in a special awards ceremony. Teams will be able to choose the charity of their choice!
No matter your ability, all that participate in your Challenge team will help towards the Most Accumulated Laps competition. The Team with the most total laps will win this award.
We will also recognize the Challenge team who accumulates the most laps by its top 6 riders
Team Challenge: Fundraising Pledge (in addition to Registration Fees): A minimum pledge of $1000 for each Corporate team, with all proceeds to benefit the charity of their choice.
In addition to the top fundraising teams, awards will be given after the ride to the Corporate Challenge Team that accumulates the most TOTAL laps, as well as the most laps accumulated by the top 6 riders on a Corporate Challenge Team.
The Armed Forces Challenge:
Active Duty, retired and reserve armed forces members compete to earn bragging rights as the most competitive service. The service whose participants complete the most TOTAL laps, as well as the most laps completed by their top 6 riders, will be honored and recognized on stage during Sunday’s Men’s Pro race. It doesn’t matter if you are participating as an individual or if you are on a Corporate Challenge team, if you are active duty, retired or reserve, your laps will count as part of this challenge! When you register, simply indicate your branch of service and don’t forget to bring your military ID to packet pick-up to confirm your status.
