RIDE DISTANCES AND INFORMATION
The Huntsman SportsFest ride (formerly the Huntsman 140) is an epic ride through northern and central Utah. Four out-and-back rides start and end at Fort Douglas at the University of Utah, while some additional distances start at Salem Hills High School and end at Fort Douglas. This is a non-competitive, single-day, fully supported ride, with multiple distance options that make it the ideal ride for both the beginner and seasoned cyclist.
Each participant will receive a Huntsman SportsFest t-shirt at check-in, and those who fundraise $500 or more will receive the Huntsman SportsFest cycling jersey (check out our incentives page for more information). Although fundraising is not required, we encourage each participant and team to set a goal and try!
