In response to the ongoing public health concerns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, our Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year's event. Please know this decision did not come lightly. We realize the impact that this event has on our community, as we bring together walkers, runners, and cyclists from all over the country. While we'd hoped to continue this 17 year tradition, the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and community remains our highest priority.
By making this decision in a timely manner, we hope to give our participants the opportunity to rearrange any travel plans associated with this race while also honoring the importance of health in our communities.  

Just as you are, we are disappointed that this year's event will not take place, but we look forward to welcoming you again next August!

Join us for the 2020 Tour de La Porte!

Going the Distance for Healthy Living

Tour de La Porte is a cycling, running and walking event to benefit youth and healthy living programs through the La Porte County Family YMCA. 100% of the proceeds raised are used to provide direct support to eligible La Porte County residents in need of financial assistance towards such programs. At the Y, we don’t turn anyone away due to the inability to pay.

We encourage family participation - when you sign up you'll notice adjusted pricing or children.

In an effort to help maintain safe distancing for the running events we will be recording starting times for each participant and leaving the starting lines for each race open for 15 minutes.  Participants in the Half Marathon may begin their run anytime between 6:30AM-6:45AM CDT.  Participants in the 5K Run will be able to begin their race anytime between 7:30AM-7:45AM CDT.  Runners official race times will begin when they cross the starting line for either event.

Participants will receive a text message and/or email with their official times as they finish their run. 

In order to help insure the safety of our participants we will have minimal post race refreshments and we will not be hosting an awards ceremony after the run.  Official overall and age group awards will be posted on-line as soon as the last participant for each event has finished.  Approximately 10AM for the Half Marathon, 9AM for the 5K.  Award winners can pick up their awards at the race site until 11AM on race day, or at the LaPorte Family YMCA any time after that.
