RECREATIONAL RIDES and events …WITH A CAUSE

The Gateway Cup is more than an event for racers. We feature recreational rides, runs, and events for people of all ages and athletic abilities.

Podium Puppies! We will be making our Pro Men and Women’s Awards ceremonies extra “pawsome.” Each day we will have shelter puppies available to foster in our daily Expo. For each Awards ceremony one special puppy will be “the awards presenter.” Be sure to visit the booths and take home a trophy puppy.
