"bIG TIME RACE - SMALL TOWN FEEL"
PRESENTED TO YOU BY
WILL YOU BE ON THE PODIUM OR IN THE PODIUM?
"The Quick and The Dead" - A Mt. Davis Gravel Grinder is back for the 3rd consecutive year! This is a gravel road bicycle race from Confluence Pennsylvania. The course will take you up and over the highest point in the State, Mount Davis. You can choose either the 68 mile long course with 50 miles of gravel and over 7'500 accumulative vertical feet or the 48 mile short course that is no small feat in itself to accomplish. Come for the challenge and stay for the fun! The name says it all. Will you be one of the Quick (fast) or one of the Dead (not so fast)?
This is a Nonprofit event with all of the proceeds going to the Local Volunteer Fire Departments of Somerset County that support the local Townships and Borough's along the course. The venue will be held at the Confluence VFD’s event building on Barlow Street. Food & Entertainment will follow the race event. The Confluence VFD will be receiving the largest percentage of the proceeds for hosting the event.
All fundraising is being done on behalf of the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies (CFA) - Mt. Davis Gravel Grinder Fund. CFA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. CFA registration and financial information are available from PA Dept. of State by calling 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement. The proceeds from this charitable event will be distributed to volunteer fire departments that serve Somerset County.
Our friends over at Lauf Forks thought up one hell of a great idea.
Why not let the winners of the brand spanking Lauf Forks decide on their own what they want? Instead of giving away forks, they will hand out two (2) one thousand dollar ($1000) gift certificates to use for their online store.
So there it is! MDGG will be drawing one (1) gal and one (1) guy out of the first one hundred (100) registered in "The Quick & The Dead" race to receive these certificates.
