Blind Date season 7 starts September 16th! Here are a couple of notes for you while we get everything ready to go:
To honor our more "experienced" racers, we'll be adding men's 50+ and 60+ fields this season. Thanks to our hosts Alpenrose Dairy, OBRA, and our awesome sponsors, our entry fees will remain unchanged, and are still some of the lowest in bike racing. We do our best to promote an accessible, fun, and low stress series, from the kids' race to the pros.
Keep your eyes posted for further details on our first night's OHSU Knight Cancer Challenge fund raiser, which will take place during our Stampede one lap race on September 16th at 5:50 pm. You will have the opportunity to join over 10,000 donors from all 50 states who raised $1 billon to lead the stampede against cancer, right here in Portland at OHSU. The details are simple: just like in a walkathon, get pledgers to pledge money for each racer you beat in the one lap handicapped Stampede. Collect the money and remit at our registration booth. We'll forward the money to the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and reward you with swag! This is an excellent opportunity to provide your age 12 and over kids, and non-racing friends and family, a taste of cyclocross, in a one lap, low key race for an incredibly worthy cause!
