Many Roads. One Purpose.
The Tour de Cure is all-new and is perfect for all abilities. Choose the course that best suits you, your coworkers and friends. Members of your team do not have to sign up for the same activity so building a team is easy.
Choose your distance and know that every mile helps make a difference. Whether you choose to ride your bike, run or walk all the roads we take lead to the same destination to fundraise for a cure. All the routes will be fully supported with bike mechanics, volunteer route marshals, rest stops with food and water, cheering volunteers and more.
Key details are also listed below. Continue checking this page for any last minute updates and reminders as you get ready for the big day.

Still need to register? Online registration will close at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, July 26. Anyone wishing to register after that deadline can do so the morning of the event.
Please arrive based on the check-in time of the route you wish to do (see schedule below) and inform our volunteers you are a walk-on participant. You will be asked to pay the $35 walk-on fee, plus the $200 fundraising minimum.
All participants are responsible for the $200 fundraising minimum. Anyone not at the minimum by Sunday will be asked for cash, check or credit card to cover any remaining balance.
Your Participant Center will remain open through the event to receive online donations, and we will have collection envelopes available at check-in for any cash or check donations.
Anyone arriving prior to 10:00 a.m. will not be stopped at the gate. Anyone arriving after 10:00 a.m. is subject to entry fees. Download our Event Newsletter for a parking pass to be let in at no charge.
