We've gone Virtual for 2020!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the county and state orders regarding requirements for organized events, we feel it is in the best interest of our participants and volunteers to switch to a virtual format for the 2020 race.  We aren't cancelling!  We are providing multiple options for our participants, and awards for your efforts!

Our new format will allow participants to ride ANYTIME between August 15 and October 15.  You may ride the Bear Trap or Trout Creek routes, or you may ride 38 (or 76!) miles in another location!  Please understand these rides are UNSUPPORTED!  Awards will be given out for the following:

Fastest time, male/female, Bear Trap route
Fastest time, male/female, Trout Creek route
Fastest time, Cyclocross (Trout Creek)
Fastest time, any 38 mile route
38 miles with the most elevation gain (single ride)
38 mile ride furthest away from the York Volunteer Fire Department (out of state, out of country, etc.)
Most 38 mile rides during the 2 month window (any location, each at least 38 miles in length)
Best photo on your ride (must be wearing your York 38 Special Bib)
Additional awards may be added!


All activities must be recorded and verified using your choice of GPS tracking app or software (Strava, Garmin Connect, Suunto, etc). Riders must submit their times via the Results Tab by 11:59pm on October 15, 2020 to be considered eligible for awards (details to follow). 

In addition to biking, you may also choose to run/walk 38 miles in any location!  These runs/walks may be split for a combined 38 miles.  

If you have already registered, you may choose to switch to the virtual race, defer your registration until next year, or consider it a donation to the York Volunteer Fire Department.

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply bike the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.  Your registration fee will go directly to the York Volunteer Fire Department.

We will transfer your registration to the new event date in August 2021 once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!
