GPRC Bike-A-Thon for Cancer Research!

GPRC Bike-A-Thon for Cancer Research!

Get ready to race on November 16th for this years Bike-A-Thon for Cancer Research!

This years Bike-A-Thon is brought to you by Campus Recreation in cooperation with the PEAK Sports Administration class.

Come join us in Howlers Lounge and bike the rolling hills of France while having your chance to win awesome prizes and raising money for Cancer research. Races will be played on the big screen and there are snacks, drinks, and prizes for all. Karaoke challenge & mustache contest included.

Teams determine the amount of time each member of their roster will cycle during the challenge time period (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.). So every second and every km traveled counts, and the more teammates you have the better your chances are of winning.

Teams comprised of students, staff and friends choose the amount of time they wish to pedal for. Teams can consist of a minimum 5 people up to 20. Your choice!

Teams also have the potential to cover even more ground by singing songs on the Karaoke machine. Each song helps your team by adding more km’s toward your total distance.

The team covering the most distance in the least amount of time wins the prize!

The Bike-A-Thon is a great way to raise awareness, get active, and have fun! So be sure to register by Tuesday, November 14th and help support this great cause.


$5.00 per person
