Calling all kiddos! The Gateway Cup features events each day that put little riders on the big stage. All participants will receive race finisher ribbons, an official race number and t-shirt.

The Children’s Race is benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Each year we ask for donations in addition to the low cost of registration. Please visit the Children’s Race Registration to find out more. Even if you don’t have a little rider in the race, you’ll want to stop by the Children’s Race registration table to learn more about the JDRF. Win a bike! Each day we will be raffling off a Raleigh MXR or Jazzi youth bicycle to benefit the JDRF!

We will have races each day for the following age groups:

Big Wheel, 3–4, 5–6, 7–8, 9–10, 11–12.
