[Springfield, IL] – The Springfield Park District is pleased to present our third annual Cyclocross Race, PARCX2023!
takes place Saturday, October 21st, from 10am to 2pm at Centennial Park.
What is cyclocross?
“Cyclo-” implies this is an activity that involves a bike. “-Cross” suggests that you are going to go a-cross terrain and obstacles. So, how is this different from commuting? Rather than going from point A to point B, you, the Cat 4/5 beginner, are going to race around a 1.5 -2 mile plastic tape-defined loop for about 30 minutes. Grass, dirt, a little pavement, sand, and mud are standard terrain. Those in more advanced categories (Cat 1-3) race for 45 or 60 minutes.
For more information contact Marty at 217-753-2800 ext. #2003 or register online at bit.ly/Cyclocross_SPD and look for Cyclocross (Activity #361204). Pre-registration is recommended, and participants must bring their own bike and helmet. A specialized Cyclocross bike is not needed.
