GFNY Maryland

October 1


A new GFNY World Series calendar event, GFNY Maryland, is 92 miles of racing with police-moderated intersections along the entire course. A more approachable medium course of 48 miles is also available.  GFNY Maryland starts at the aptly-named Race Street in the heart of Cambridge’s downtown. After leaving Cambridge, you enter Dorchester County, a natural, unspoiled region with waterways, marshlands, farm fields, woods, and quaint small towns. Enjoy views of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay coastline. Race past the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, a 27,000-acre place of striking marshlands, bald eagles, great blue herons, and more. You will also pass through the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park.  The race course is flat and fast, with occasional high winds. GFNY Maryland is GFNY’s flattest GFNY, making it fast for athletes to work together in a peloton. Still, it is also a beginner-friendly course with excellent support throughout.  Long-route riders repeat the loop a 2nd time before heading back to downtown Cambridge.  As with all GFNY events, expect fully stocked aid stations, mechanical and SAG van support, and a finisher medal & post-race meal.

GFNY events are personal endurance challenges where you compete against others, the clock, and yourself.  GFNY World events provide you with that same challenge in locations worldwide. Additionally, you can qualify for a front corral start at the GFNY World Championship every May in NYC.  For every event, each athlete has a timing chip, which starts right after you cross the start line and stops when you cross the finish line. Timing results for all riders will be provided at the finish area on race day and online after the race. Only the finishers of the events-long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall Podium awards. You must complete the long course to race and be ranked in your category. The top 10% of finishers in each age group qualify for the Racer Corral at every GFNY World event.  All GFNY events have the bonus of closed roads and police-moderated traffic that ensures added safety, and you don’t have to stop during the race.   Also, look for VIP ticket options, including a VIP registration suite, Private shopping service, VIP Corral start, 30-min post-race massage, and access to a Post-race hospitality suite.

Besides GFNY Maryland and the GFNY World Championship in NYC, GFNY Florida and GFNY Rockford fill out the US calendar.  Strambecco also rates the best road cycling events in the Mid-Atlantic
