North Country Against Cancer will host its 17th
Annual SpokerRide on Saturday, July 27, 2019.
The SpokerRide is an annual
charity event benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the
Volunteer Transportation Center, Inc. The ride starts and ends in Sackets Harbor,
N.Y. The courses are generally flat, with some hills. There are two courses: a 30-
mile (beginner/intermediate) course, and a 50-mile (advanced) course.
A novice course is also available for those riders that want to participate but not race. Race
lengths are estimated — depending on road conditions on the day of the race.
All riders are eligible for the grand prize (drawing to be held at the award
ceremony). There will also be awards for the intermediate and advanced courses for
fastest in each age/sex category. Additionally, there are numerous door prizes and
giveaways during the awards ceremony.
Racers registered by Monday, July 1, will receive a free T-shirt. T-shirts are not
included in late and race day registrations. Registration is $40 per person.
Lunch will be provided for all riders after the ride. There will be food available
for purchase by non-participants as well, and there are many area restaurants open
on race day.
Packet pick-up and race day registration starts at 7:30 a.m. on race day at the
Third Alarm Building (Public Safety Building), 411 W. Washington St., Sackets
Harbor, N.Y. All races will start at 9 a.m.
This year’s event is underwritten by Samaritan Medical Center, Stewart’s Shops,
Westelcom, Hi-Lite Airfield Services and the Black River Adventurers Shop.
Additional support is provided by the Sackets Harbor Chamber of Commerce;
Johnson Lumber, LLC; The Clipper Inn; Crowley & Halloran, CPAs, P.C.;
Derouin’s Plumbing & Heating Inc.; Watertown Family YMCA; Watertown Savings
Bank and Independent Medical Evaluation Company (IMEC).
Each year, North Country Against Cancer works tirelessly to bring the North
Country a premier race for local riders and raises the maximum number of dollars to
support local cancer survivors. Thanks to the support seen for last year’s race, we
saw a tremendous success with 134 riders and over $11,000 raised!
