GFNY Pennsylvania race week activities take place at the centrally-located York Expo Center. You will be picking up your race packets and enjoying the post-race festivities, music, awards and post-race meal at Horticultural Hall. The start and finish will take place inside the York Expo Center property, just steps away from Hort Hall, making race day planning for you and your supporters very easy. With ample on-site parking and 1 mile from Downtown York, you’ll be at the heart of it all.
The race starts at the York Expo Center, then you will head west for 10 miles along well-paved roads into the York countryside before taking on a 30-mile loop. Ride past farm fields and wooded hillsides. The rolling hills vary in height from 200ft to 1000ft in altitude, serving you one challenge after another, with only the descents to provide some rest, and no flat riding in sight. The scenic beauty will leave you in awe but the hills will put a sting in your legs.
Relish in the climbing, descending and fun of cycling along impressive nature like Gifford Pinchot State Park and its Pinchot Lake, along the winding Conewago Creek, along the base of Roundtop Mountain, past rocky ridges and through majestic forests and river valleys. York County is the foothills spanning from New York to Alabama, the hills turn into mountains to the west and coastal flat to the east.
Long route riders repeat the loop a 2nd time before heading back to the finish line at the York Expo Center, where the post-race festival awaits you.
LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards.

MEDIUM COURSE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The riders of the medium course will be provided their start-to-finish time, but will not be ranked by finish time. All finish times will be listed in alphabetical order.
