The Royal Wentworth Memorial 5k Run/Walk - Saturday Sept 6th 2014

The 2014 SJC benefiting the Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa is less than two weeks away!  We hope you've got Saturday, September 6 marked on your calendar.  If not, we invite you to join us for a day of riding, food, music and fun.  This year's ride features our classic 22 and 50 mile scenic routes and introduces newly revised 70 and 100 mile century routes.  All feature rolling hills, multiple river crossings, beautiful views, fully stocked rest stops and SAG support.
Your entry includes BBQ pulled pork sandwich lunch.  Live post ride music will again be provided by Zoo Loo Doo and "Sorta Jazz Sextet".

All this is done to further promote North Iowa as a cycling destination and to raise funds for The Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa.  BIAI is committed to providing support and advocacy to those affected by brain injury and they will once again be on hand to distribute information and free youth bike helmets till gone.

All of us with the St. John's Classic hope to see you this year.  You can let us know you're coming and save $10 over day of registration by signing up for our event on today.

***Goes without saying but, if you've enjoyed our ride in the past or just want to help us reach record registrants, we'd be honored if you'd share this info with your friends and encourage them to try our event.***

Over the years the St. John's Classic has raised thousands of dollars for Brain Injured Iowans and we'd love to make 2014 SJC the largest ever.
