"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 being distributed 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.
Hope you are smart and safe!
Just a quick FYI- September is a long way out and we are still moving forward with the Q&D race. But with everything uncertain at this time we feel now is not the time to think about registering for an upcoming race. We are sure your thoughts are elsewhere. The July 1st registration has been postponed until August 2nd at 6 PM. This may save some aggravation down the gravel road later.
Stay tuned for updates.
