Don’t forget that optional race number pickup is available for the Central Park Classic p/b Accelerade and 2nd Surge on Thursday from 6pm-8pm at Third and Long. (If you prefer to pick up before the race on Saturday morning, that’s fine. Number pickup is open from 4:45am to 5:20am.  There is NO day of registration)

This is a great opportunity to avoid long lines on race morning and perhaps sleep in a few more minutes (don’t forget its a 5:30AM race start!).

If you’d like to pickup your number on Thursday please sign up for the event on Bikereg before 4PM on Thursday and bring your USAC license to the event.

If you have any questions please email openracing[at]

Thank you to CRCA Member Matt Long (Asphalt Green) for allowing us to host this event at Third and Long and providing happy hour specials.
