1. What if I already completed the Capital Trail? Can I still participate?
Yes! Register now! You can submit your results anytime before September 15th 2020. You can find instructions on how to submit results here. If you cannot remember the time, just guess!
2. Do I have to be a cyclist to participate?
No! This challenge is for EVERYONE! You can even ride one day and walk the next.
3. Do I have to complete the Capital Trail all at once?
No! You can complete two miles one day and ten miles the next day. Whatever works for you!
4. Are there any age restrictions?
Anyone under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult but everyone can participate!
5. Does time/speed matter?
No, this is not competitive. This is a fun challenge for everyone to complete at their own pace.
1- The obvious: completing the Trail all at once.
2- Divide it into various sections. Make it a goal to accomplish 10 miles (20 total) once a week. This is the most common way I have seen so far.
3- Have a family member or friend drop you off AND pick you up.
4- Grab a buddy and park your car where you want to start and the other where you want to finish. That way you do not have to double-dip!
Set goals and plan out how many miles you hope to accomplish each time you step on the Trail! You have 3 months to complete this challenge so you can take it slow!
We will be shipping your merch on the following dates:
We encourage everyone to continue following social distancing on the Capital Trail. For more information, please visit our website.
