Charity Cycling Event to Raise Money for Larry H. Miller Charities
TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (July 27, 2011) – The inaugural Million Miles at Miller, a charitable fundraising cycling event, will take place at Miller Motorsports Park this Saturday, July 30. Million Miles at Miller is a 100-mile, family-friendly cycling ride that can be completed by solo riders, relay teams or group teams. Riders of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
The event will utilize the 3.048-mile Outer Course road racing circuit at Miller Motorsports Park, the same circuit used by the FIM Superbike World Championship, the American Le Mans Series and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. The track has proven to be a very popular cycling venue, serving annually as a stage of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah and hosting numerous local cycling events.
“We are looking forward to the inaugural Million Miles at Miller,” said Greg Miller, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. “This is going to be a fun, family-friendly event that will go a long way to benefit women and children in our community. We intend to make this an annual tradition, and would like to see it grow into a 24-hour event.”
To participate in the event, each rider is required to pay a $25 registration fee (includes commemorative shirt, participant medal and high-energy snacks) as well as agree to fundraise a minimum of $150. Proceeds will be donated to Larry H. Miller Charities, which funds nonprofit organizations in the areas of health and education for women and children. The person raising the most money will receive the grand prize of an all-expense-paid trip for two to a Utah Jazz road game on the team charter plane.
All types of bicycles are permitted on the course to cycle the 33 laps it will take to complete this century ride. Recumbent bikes, mountain bikes, beach cruisers, unicycles and racing bikes are welcome. Participants are not required to complete 100 miles; riders can ride any distance they wish.
The event will include high-energy food, all day, for everyone. A food station will be set up for riders in the pit lane of the track. A Kids Course Rodeo for younger riders will help children learn bicycle safety rules and teach them how to be sure their bike is in good working order. In addition, there will be discounted rates on Miller Motorsports Park’s karting track and new Zip Line.
