The Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge:
24 Hours on the Test Track
Raising funds to support the abused and neglected children of Tippecanoe County
SUPPORT OUR RIDERS
To see a list of all riders, go to "Sponsor a Rider" and in the first name space, type _ and then hit return.
The Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge allows individuals and teams to test their endurance over a 24-hour period while raising funds for children in need. It will be held rain or shine beginning at 10 AM Aug. 13 and concluding at 10 AM Aug. 14, 2016. Electronic lap-counting and timing services will be provided by Sportstats, with additional results and large monitors.
The event is hosted by Subaru of America, Inc. and Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. at its 2-mile test track in Lafayette. The track is part of Subaru’s Backyard Wildlife Habitat and will provide a wonderful environment for the event, with no motorized traffic, no loose gravel, no potholes or many of the other hazards associated with a ride over public roads.
The 2016 event is limited to the first 50 individual riders and the first 50 teams to register. Teams may have as few as 2 people, but no more than 12.
For individual riders it is a race against the clock to see if you can reach your personal mileage goal. The three men and three women accumulating the most miles in 24 hours will be recognized at a brief awards ceremony at the track immediately after the ride concludes. For teams, the ride is like a relay, with only one member of a team on the track at a time. The three teams with the most miles will also be recognized for their efforts.
Virtual riders can participate even if they are out of town during the challenge, prefer to ride a stationery bike, ride another time, or not ride at all. Virtual riders can ride when or where they want, collect donations from friends and family, or just support the cause. You can even have a team of virtual riders – how about your spin class?
The registration fee includes a T-shirt for each individual rider, virtual rider, or team member who registers by August 1; one ankle strap for each individual or team (only one team bike may be on the track at any given time, so teams will share one ankle strap); and food and drink at our 24-hour SAG stop. Additional fundraising is encouraged, but not required. The top three individual and top three team fundraisers will be named at the awards ceremony. The top individual and team will be recognized on a traveling trophy.
The Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge benefits the CASAs for Kids Fund. This fund supports the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program in its efforts to enrich the lives of abused and neglected children in Tippecanoe County.
