Sat, Sept 8: The first annual unicycle race of Yonkers. 10 am (get there by 9). Specific ocation details to follow.
We’re just working now to finalize plans such as the cash prize fund, but it’s at least $500!
We think the prizes will be divvied something like this:
$100/$50/$25 for top three times, adult
$75/$50/$25/$15/$10 for top five, under 12 years old, male
$75/$50/$25/$15/$10 for top five, under 12 years old, female
There is also a good possibility of additional Grand Prizes of “Dinner for Two” at some gorgeous restaurants nearby – valued at about $250!
The race will probably be about 5 miles for adults, 2 miles for kids 12 and under. With enough interest, we could open other age categories, too.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING, YOU MUST CONTACT ME NOW SO THAT I CAN GET BACK TO THE ORGANIZERS WITH SOME IDEA OF # OF RACERS!!!
Without enough interest, there will be a very limited race, or it may be canceled, so please let me know if you’d like to come.
As for wheel size and gears, right now we don’t foresee the need to restrict people to 24" unis, so anything goes as long as it’s on one human-powered wheel!
Again, please get back to me asap if you (or your family member) would like to attend. Also, let me know if you have suggestions about prizes, etc.
