Thanks for registering for the Beer City Growler! Alger Bikes is proud to host a premier bike and running race, and bring serious fun to Wilcox Park and Eastown, Grand Rapids! A “steeplechase”-style running course at just about 5 kilometers precedes a full day of USA Cycling-sanctioned racing at all levels.
 
Our Tech Guide will always be located here: http://tinyurl.com/bcgtech2017
 
Our marquee races in the early afternoon offer $2500 in cash prizes, and all of the winners will go away with a special prize to take home the best of Grand Rapids’ most prolific fruit, beer! Payouts for the marquee races (fields starting at the same time) is based on overall finish order. Start order will be based on current USA Cycling scores.
 
Eastown Community Association is sponsoring a beer garden in the thick of the action. We’ll have a number of local brews on tap for you to try. We ask that you don’t bring your own alcohol into the park, in respect to Eastown Community Association and our neighbors.
 
Part of the race proceeds are going directly into the parks system and Eastown Community Association in order to improve the places we get to play in.
 
The ever-popular Kid’s Race will be taking place on a separate course at 12:45PM near the playground. Bring your under-10 kids and whatever two-wheeled (ok, three is fine) apparatus they want to ride around our pint-sized course! We’ll split up the kids roughly by age and everyone wins!! Parent waivers are required, and we will have those on-site for you to fill in. There’s no entry fee for the Kid’s Race!
 
An annual USA Cycling license is required for all races requiring a Category 4 (Men) or Category 3 (Women) license or above. One-day licenses are available for purchase here, or on-site.
 
The marquee races are “Open”, so if you’ve got the skills to compete with the best, grab your one-day and watch out for elbows! We're offering up a $1000 prize purse for the combined fields, paid out ten deep!
 
Timing is provided by One2Go Services (the same people who bring you Cyclocross Nationals), and you’ll have live lap timing in addition to that epic photo finish!!
 
Course inspection for cyclocross racers starts by 8:30AM, and races start at 9:30AM.
