Conquer the Hill at Miller School of Albemarle - VORS #2

Start line address: 1000 Samuel Miller Loop, Charlottesville, VA22903
Presented by Cutaway Bike Camp

**All races begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 16**

The Race

4 hour Cross Country Marathon race on fun yet challenging 9 mile course. All riders and categories start together, and the person who completes the most laps in 4 hours is the winner! (Riders cannot begin a new lap after the 4 hour mark, but many will be out on course when that time elapses and be racing for over 4 hours)


Every year, students at Miller School of Albemarle dedicate service hours to expanding the amazing network of campus trails on the school's scenic 1600 acre campus. The miles of trails and unigue cycling-specific features have progressed to the point that they can not possibly be showcased in a traditional 3 to 5 mile cross country race format. The Conquer the Hill course highlights many of the best trails, with special attention on the newest creations. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the Miller School of Albemarle Campus Trails program and help in the creation of more great trails and trail features!
