Join us for the 4th annual 6 Hours of Gibraltar mountain bike relay on July 9th, 2016. This event boasts an amazing private mtb course, and a fun festival-like environment - all for a great cause! All proceeds go to My Friend's House, a safe place for women and children that need to escape abusive situations.
You can participate in the relay race as a solo athlete, a team of four, or a corporate team of eight. This event is suitable for all skill levels and last year saw racers registered from 8 yrs - 72 yrs old navigate the 6km, moderate skill level private mountain bike course. And, as always, your team can be male, female or coed and the race is open to children and adults. For pricing information, please check out the Info Tab.
"My Friend's House volunteer Board must raise over $200,000
each year to maintain service and there is no way they can do this on their
own. 6 Hours of Gibraltar is a significant event because not only does it
help us maintain service, it allows us to raise awareness about violence against
women and the services My Friend's House provides. We can't thank the
organizers and participants enough for helping us out in such a big way." - Alison Fitzgerald, Executive Director of My Friend's House.
This year out fundraising goal is $150,000.00. All of which will be donated to My Friend's House.
A full value consideration - T Shirt, Grab Bag, Prizes, Medals are provided for one and all. Morning coffee provided by Ashanti Coffee Collingwood. Lunch is provided by Pita Pit.
