Hundreds of runners, walkers, and cyclists are expected for the 10th Annual Cucamonga Challenge starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, 2015, at Central Park in Rancho Cucamonga. The Cucamonga Challenge, presented by the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail, was created as a lifelong initiative to challenge individuals with their own fitness goals, from couch to trail to intermediate and expert fitness levels.
The annual Cucamonga Challenge is a family event, which is held to encourage health and wellness goals while connecting with the community. The Countywide Vision recognizes that wellness is a key element in our community, and is essential toward attaining educational goals and a robust economy. The realization of the Countywide Vision depends on support, participation, and leadership from all community stakeholders, including non-profit organizations.
Join us to support the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail in its efforts to promote the use of the 21-mile Pacific Electric Trail in the Inland Empire and contribute to the achievement of the Countywide Vision by fostering wellness.
The event is open to all levels. The Cucamonga Challenge will consist of five events:
* 35-mile Bike Ride
* 8-mile Pacific Electric Trail Ride
* 1-mile Family and Pet-Friendly Fun Run
