Raise the Road

On August 21, 2016, Chicago Women’s Elite Cycling will host the second annual Women’s Midwest Road Race Championship  in Leland, Illinois.

This race is special.
It's run for women, by women.

This race is a movement.
We're showcasing our numbers and strength as women in a male-dominated sport, which is what #RaisetheRoad is all about. 

This race has roots.
It unites women across the Midwest to create a fun & meaningful experience for women of all ages to engage in the racing community and further their athletic abilities.

But in order to host the race, we need your help.
We need to raise $5,000 to pay for race permits, officials, event space and payouts. But more importantly, your donation will create an essential foundation for hosting this race not only in Chicago in 2016, but in other Midwestern cities in years to come.

- Sign up to volunteer  during the race
- Have your business become sponsor of the race by reaching out [email redacted]
- Tag your social posts that feature women’s racing in the Midwest with #RaiseTheRoad

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We'll see you in Leland, Illinois on August 21st.
