Early registration is now underway for the Town of Marana’s 28-mile segment of the El Tour de Tucson. Cyclists who wish to participate in the segment can act now for discounted entry fees.
Marana debuted the 28-mile segment last year and it was an instant hit. More than 350 riders participated in the 2016 El Tour in the Town of Marana. The third year of the Town of Marana’s partnership with the El Tour de Tucson promises to be even more popular.
The shorter distance proved to be an attraction for both younger and older riders, as well as riders experiencing their first El Tour de Tucson. At just28-miles the Marana stage appeals to those who want to participate in the race, but find the longer distances too daunting.
Starting in the heart of the Town of Marana at Heritage River Park, cyclists travel south through the Gladden Farms area to downtown Tucson along the base of the Tucson Mountains with awesome views of the Catalina and Rincon Mountain ranges. It will provide great views of Marana’s scenic open spaces.
The special early bird pricing is in effect from now until October 31. Riders 15 and over are just $125, while those 14 and under are just $44.
After October 31 the rate climbs to $175.
The special rates are only available through the Marana Segment webpage: http://www.perimeterbicycling.com/el-tour-de-tucson/register-marana/
