Somerset County has some of the longest running and most prestigious sporting events in the country. We are proud to host the below events each year and hope you’ll come join us as spectators or as a participant.
Tour of Somerville
The longest running bike race in the United States, the Tour of Somerville is held each year on Memorial Day Weekend, culminating in a grand finale event on Memorial Day in Downtown Somerville. During this event, there is a day-packed schedule that begins with a Family Fun Ride, followed by junior races, Master’s Races, and Pro races with an award ceremony to conclude the event. Spectators can see the excitement as bikes race down Main Street and check out the various restaurants and shops in this bustling downtown. Learn more about the Tour of Somerville here.

For over a century, this annual gathering has attracted a large and loyal fanbase who return year after year to watch the world’s finest steeplechases, reconnect with family and friends, and support worthy causes to make memories to last a lifetime.
