In addition to Championship medals and BARR points - the Glenwood RR will be offering a significant prize package of both money and merchandise of at least $2500. More details as the race flyer and sponsor commitments get finalized.

We are planning on utilizing again this year. Please note that some fields will be restricted (CAT 5 Men & CAT 4 Women are limited by USA Cycling rules to 50 participants); and may fill quickly. All other categories will be limited by the race committee (as will be published on If you want to ensure your participation in this WA State Championship race plan accordingly. I will provide a link, so when you see the BikeReg logo appear on this site you will be able to start online pre-registration - estimated to be March 1st.

Like last year - I think Kitsap County will require inclusion on the USA Cycling racer release. So for those of you that like to have things filled out ahead of time to streamline your time at day-of-race registration I will have that provided as a link when finalized. Otherwise forms will be available at registration day-of-race.

Out of state racers are always welcome, you will not be eligible for WA State Championship medals; but will be eligible for your share of the prize package based on your actual order of finish.
