June 2nd is National Trails Day. since 1986, National Trails Day has focused national attention on the need for and benefits of trails.
Enjoy entry fee discounts and bring more visibility to your organization while helping raise money for the B&O trail. this is a great way for businesses, service clubs and churches to encourage exercise and build morale within their organizations. New this year: if you raise money for the ride, your team entry fee will be waived.
Seven or more people can register as a team with discounts based on the size of the team. Team members must be affiliated with the same organization, such as a business, school, church, or service club. We will take a picture of all teams and display the winning teams in our publicity materials.
The team that raises the most money for the B&O Trail will receive a plaque to hang on their organization’s "brag wall".
To enhance team spirit and make the organization more visible, team members are encouraged to wear some kind of "costume" such as matching clothing or accessories.
Teams must be pre-registered by May 20, 2012. No same day registration for teams. As a price incentive, team members will receive the following discount off the regular individual fee, which is $20 per person.

Consider giving a donation to the B&O trail in addition to your ride entry fee. The B&O trail has made great progress in the last year, paving 3 miles of new trail, but there's a long way to go and we need your help! HCTDA is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofi t, so your donation is tax deductible.
You may register the day of the ride, but the fee increases (see registration form).
