Sacramento Century Challenge: October 1-5, 2020

The Sacramento Century Challenge is back this October and we hope you will join us in participating in our seventh annual Ride for a Reason.

Each year, the Rotary Club of Sacramento hosts the Sacramento Century Challenge to raise critical funds for the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery, which assists local children and families facing crises in our community. While this year’s Sacramento Century is going to look a little different, we hope you will join us for a fun and safe way to help local children and families in need.

Even as the Coronavirus continues to affect virtually all aspects of life around us, the Rotary Club of Sacramento is committed to keeping the Sacramento Century Challenge tradition alive. This year, the club has modified the event to prioritize the safety and health of our participants in light of the pandemic, while still providing a fun and engaging event cycling enthusiasts.

The 2020 Sacramento Century Challenge is now a 100-Hour Challenge, where participants ride as much as they like – a full century, a metric century, a half-century, or a fun ride of their own choosing — between Thursday, October 1 and Monday, October 5.

Potential routes will be provided on the Sac Century website or organizers can assist riders in developing their own!

Additionally, registrants will receive great Sacramento Century swag, including a themed medal, backpack, and neck gaiter all for the reduced registration fee of $50.

Best of all, whether you ride a century or a few miles with your family, you are supporting kids and families served by Sacramento’s only Crisis Nursery. Now more than ever the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery needs our help so we hope you will join us and Ride for a Reason!

And new this year, registrants can participate even if they aren’t passionate cyclists.

We encourage people interested in supporting the important work of the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery to consider cycling, walking, or running during our 100-Hour Challenge to show their support for this important cause. We encourage all participants to consider becoming a Challenge Champion to help raise additional funds on behalf of the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery. Challenge Champions receive incentive prizes as they reach certain fundraising benchmarks, including a Sac Century jersey when they raise $350 for the cause.

The Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery is essential to our community so we hope you will join us in supporting this vital program.
