GFNY is a personal endurance challenge where you compete against others, the clock and yourself. Waco’s version will make its inaugural debut on June 26, 2022!
Race on open, tranquil and scenic Central Texas county roads. The beautiful nature will amaze and inspire you as you ride through the main Blackland Prairie ecoregion, rolling hills and the Edwards Plateau savanna. The race course passes farmland, cattle ranches and dairies.
Race week activities are headquartered at the Waco Convention Center.
The race starts and finishes on North University Parks Drive aside the Waco Convention Center. After traveling on the closed-to-cars University Parks Drive and crossing the Brazos River via the Herring Ave Bridge, you leave the City of Waco and enter McLennan County and its vast nature.
The effort will go up a notch as you tackle a 2-mile-long hill just before entering the 35-mile loop. The loop has some flat sections for fast riding along with gently rolling hills. The medium course riders will do the loop once, while the competitive, long course riders will do the loop twice.
Post-race celebrations are at the Waco Convention Center and include music and an awards ceremony.
