Bike, Run Event to Benefit Parks Foundation

Cyclists and runners will get to test their skills March 10 at South Mountain Park/Preserve, 10919 S. Central Ave., while helping to support the Phoenix Parks Foundation. The Landis Cyclery South Mountain Bike and Run Classic are races set amidst the grandeur of the park’s Sonoran Desert setting. A family festival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. will allow people of all ages to get into the act. Kids can also join a free bike race at 4 p.m. on the cycling circuit course.
The event is a partnership between the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, White Mountain Road Club and Running Masters to benefit the Phoenix Parks Foundation with additional support from Gravity Riders of Arizona and the Phoenix Police Department. Ten dollars of each registration will go to the foundation, which supports parks, preserves, recreation facilities and programs in Phoenix. Additional event sponsors include Salt River Project, Pivot Cycles and BH Ultralight Bicycles. Event details are available online on the event website at: http://phoenix.gov/parks/trails/specials/sthclassic.html
Road cyclists in the Bike Classic can choose from a series of circuit races on a two-mile course on roads at the mountains’ base or a climb up the park’s Summit Road – an elevation gain of approximately 1,200 feet. Cyclists can find event details online as links from the event website or directly at wmrc.org for race information or BikeReg.com to register.
Runners can take on the South Mountain Challenge, a five-mile run up the Summit Road, then walk a popular trail back down to the start. Running race registration information is available online as a link from the event website or directly from runningmasters.net.
Those not riding or running can enjoy the family festival, which will include a bike rodeo and bike helmet fitting clinic for kids, food and beverage vendors, information and product sampling booths and the chance to take a run through a bicycle “pump” track (see event website for details), set up by Gravity Riders of Arizona (GroAZ). Kids also can enjoy a free race on the road cycling circuit course.
