Sourlands Spectacular

« All Events

September 11 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Sourland Spectacular is back, celebrating its 10th consecutive year, returning to an in-person group event on September 11 at 7am and self-paced cycling, hiking and running September 12–19. So please save those dates.
This year, the Conservancy will be offering our traditional event with some slight modifications to accommodate those riders who may not feel comfortable riding in large groups, promoting a full week of riding the routes and hiking our trails with rest stops and water stations still in place.
The kickoff event on September 11th will feature both staggered starts and lunches. Riders may begin when they would like between 7:00-10:00am in order to complete their route in time for lunch.
Pre-event coffee and breakfast will be followed by lunches served from 11:00 until 2:00. The lunch will, of course, be capped by our famous ice cream sundaes. You will have earned it!
The $50 entry fee for the September 11th event includes lunch, swag and rest stops with snacks. Course markers and rest stops will remain in place through September 19th for riders who prefer to ride the course and hike or run the trails on their own. For those individuals, we encourage you to donate to support our critical work promoting, preserving and protecting the Sourlands.
There will be several new fundraising opportunities. Our website will include an invitation for you to solicit sponsorships for your ride or your hike. Riders who solicit $200 or more in sponsorships will receive a cycling jersey commemorating the event. Alternatively, you will be able to purchase jerseys for $85. We also will have a basket of Sourland goodies for the individual who raises the most sponsorship donations.
We hope you will join us again this year – running, cycling, and hiking through the gorgeous forest and farmland of the historic Sourlands.
Proceeds from the event will help support our tremendous forest restoration effort, now underway. We hope to plant 10,000 trees and shrubs this year!
Thanks for your continuing support. #ExploreTheSourlands
