Dr. Michael Ross Memorial race!  We hope to see you and your team at our event.  This '2nd annual' event honors the notable contributions of the late, Michael Ross, MD, the Rothman Institute Cycling Team doctor who we continue to hold in our hearts.  Dr. Ross served as the official race doctor for multiple editions of the Philadelphia pro races and for other professional cycling teams.  His training plans, testing protocols, and published literature catapolted many of the Rothman team members to top finishes. 

Race proceeds benefit:   We will be updating this to reflect the desires of the Ross family - Stay tuned!

 

PARKING  - ALL RACE Parking is in the same new location as last year on the outside of the course this year. 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.

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.  Portable toilets are located in this lot for your convenience. 

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.  

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)
