The bike course is a 10-mile out-and-back course through the rolling hills of F.M. 116/Ivy Gap Road, followed by a 1.5- mile run at the park. The awards ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. The Kids’ Fun Run is a 1K run through South Park that will begin a few minutes before the awards ceremony. The event will also include free massages, goody bags, a $20 gift certificate to Happy Salon, technical race shirts and finisher awards. This is a USAT-sanctioned event.
