Directions:  The corner of Van Buren Ave & Adams Ave., Norristown, PA 19403 - (40.123943, -75.417613) 

From the King of Prussia area take Rt 422W to the Rt 363N Trooper Road exit and go right off the exit and then an immediate left at the light onto Audubon Road. Take the first right onto Adams Ave and follow it to the race course turning left into the main parking lot, which is across the street from Metropolitan Veterinary Associates.     


36th Annual!  We hope to see you and your team at our event. A special THANK YOU to the Harwi family for staying connected to the race!  2024 will again see another race on the same course in September 2024.  Our race has evolved through the years with adjustments in distance length and payouts that come to us mostly from racers like you. Please bring your friends and family to our spectator-friendly course.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS SPECIAL NOTE:   This year's event has been designated as the 2024 Pennsylvania Cycling Association Junior State Championships for men and women who are 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14.   Non-Pennsylvania riders are invited to all races. 

A special reminder to junior racers competing in the State Championships races that you need to purchase your annual Junior USA Cycling racing licenses to be eligible.  And when we say 'purchase', we mean go through the 'no-charge' process on USA Cycling's website.   

Women's and Non-binary events - We have worked hard to ensure that women racers have as many opportunities to race as possible.   We have made significant changes for 2024:  Pay equity in the W123 and M123 races.  Pay equity in the Cat 4 only and W 4/5 and Non-Binary  events ($250 amounts depending on attendance levels as always).  The W4/5 and Non-Binary races have been moved to 9:25am, earlier in the day (the Cat 4 race will be at 4pm).  We feel that it is important there be a Women's Cat 4/5 race in addition to the 1/2/3 race.   A separate non-binary category continues in 2024 with separate podium awards.  Please register early as the promoter will maintain pay equity but has the right to reduce the number of paying places in the W123 if turnout is low.  Please be sure to put us on your calendar - we need as many women and non-binary racers to show up as possible.   Please pre-reg early!

Race proceeds benefit:   We are continuing our support for a worthy cause, to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association for Daniel Harwi who we have never forgotten in these many years.

PARKING  - ALL RACE Parking is in the same new location as last year on the outside of the course this year.  Race parking is in a parking lot on the corner of Van Buren Ave and Adams Ave (at turn #4). There are two lots to choose from. The best way is to turn from Audubon Road onto Adams Ave. This will bring into the office park. Proceed to what is turn #4 of the race course. On your left is race parking. No parking in the center lots as we've worked with the township to make this race safer and an institution for Lower Providence as they've given us a permanent parking opportunity. Please stick to the lot where the portable bathrooms are - let's not make the businesses in this part resent us by parking in their lots.

Also if you are coming in off of Rittenhouse Road, you could turn onto Van Buren Ave and parking will be on your right at the second driveway. Registration will be near start finish and in this lot to keep things compact/easy.  As well, registration will be in this lot to keep things compact/easy.

Race Course - S/F is on Adams Ave.  Race course turns right onto Eisenhower, Madison, Van Buren and back onto Adams Ave. 

Please listen to the marshalls when they direct you to the parking location.

As always, this is a PCA / BAR race (www.pacycling.org)
