RIDE or RUN 50 or 100 MILES!
This isn’t your typical ride or run. Challenge yourself to complete the 50 mile or 100 mile course!

When: Saturday, September 19, 2020
Where: Hiawatha Highlands

Event Details:

• Open to current Sault Cycling Club members. Not a member? Join our club today!
• Start and stop anytime you like. Restock when you need to. The course is not timed.
• Each lap is approx. 27 km. If you are planning to do the 100 mile, we recommend starting VERY early in the morning. 
• Ride on your own, or with your friends. Please remember to stay in your social bubbles!
• This is self-supported, so you need to bring everything you need for the ride with you and leave it in your vehicle at the Hiawatha parking lot. Lights will be needed to finish the 100 miles. 
• Follow the trail markers on the Crystal, Pinder and Red Pine Trails.
We recommend following them in the direction they are signed – but you can complete your 50/100 miles on whatever trails you like! (Ex. Do the Whole Enchilada x 3 for the 50 mile course, or Do the Crystal once, 5 Red Pine loops and 3 Pinder loops. You’re total miles are what is important!

The SCC will have a tent set up for a portion of the day to cheer you on! Note: We will not have any supplies on hand, so come prepared!

Meet the Club – Ben Warnock, Director at Large

Meet Ben! He’s a Director at Large for the SCC. Ben has organized the September 19 Event to ride or run the Hiawatha trails for 50 or 100 miles. Make sure to say hello when you see him out riding!

Name: Ben Warnock
Position: Director at Large

I grew up in the Sault, went to school in Windsor, competed in track and field at an international level, moved back to the Soo in 2016 and started mountain biking.

My interests include riding bikes, watching bike races and doing other bike related activities.

I became a part of the Sault Cycling Club Executive to help expand our trail systems, bring more riders/events to the Sault, and get more people in our community to use our trails.

I love biking because it’s challenging and there is always something to improve on. It’s mostly because it’s a competition against myself to become the best rider I can be. Whether it’s getting more endurance, being faster on the trails or having lifelong challenges like completing the Marji Gesick in under 12 hours, there is always something to look forward to and that’s exciting! And biking with friends is fun too
