Ken Woods Memorial Road Race

Ken Woods Memorial Road Race

Regretfully, we need to cancel the Ken Woods Road Race due to COVID-19.  USA Cycling has cancelled all events schedule before May 3rd.  We don’t know how things will play out but we look forward to rescheduling the race at a later date.  Stay tuned to updates here and on our facebook page.   Stay healthy out there.

The Ken Woods Memorial road race returns to Cannon Falls, MN at some TBD date after COVID-19 passes.  Ken Woods is the first road race of the 2020 season for Minnesota, so it tends to be well attended despite highly variable Spring weather.  The race is built around a 21 mile, 4 corner circuit with some flats and some climbing.  The event is fully controlled by licensed USA Cycling officials and the corners are marshalled.  That means you’ll need to have an active USAC license or purchase a one-day license on-site for $10.   Register online for $28 or register on-site for $38.
