COVID-19 NOTICE: The State of Michigan is currently restricting the number of people indoors to 25 and outdoors to 300, which would make it impossible for us to hold the event. Thornapple Kellogg Schools are not allowing any organizations to use their facilities at this time, and it would be impossible for us to find a suitable facility for holding the National 24 Hour Challenge in the Middleville area. Though the event is currently scheduled for August 7-8, we will continue to monitor the situation.

REFUND POLICY: If we are forced to reschedule or cancel the event this year, we will contact everyone who has registered and you will have the option of rolling over your registration until next year or receiving a full refund. Thank you for your understanding as we work through these challenges to make the crucial decisions that will result in a safe event for everyone – riders, crews, volunteers, and spectators.

Exciting improvements; same great N24HC!

We’ve made a few changes – including non-stop checkpoints and a single daytime loop with closer checkpoints and better facilities! And a better Sunday breakfast!

The 2020 National 24 Hour Challenge has been selected as the World Ultra Cycling Association’s 2020 North American 24-Hour Championship event for both the Women’s and Men’s divisions! We are honored to once again be unanimously selected by the board of the WUCA as their North American 24-Hour Championship event, having served as the championship event most recently in 2017.

If you would like to be eligible for the 2020 North American 24-Hour Championship, you must be a member of the WUCA. To become a WUCA member, go here. (And then come back here!)

WHY WOULD A BICYCLIST TRY TO RIDE FOR 24 HOURS?

Beginning bicyclists find a ten-mile bicycle ride is just about right. Then ten miles builds to 20… or 50…
Once you’ve done a century, you might try a double. And your next step might be to see how far you can go in a day. Not everyone can complete in the Olympics, but anyone can set a goal and try to achieve it. The N24HC is the place for you to amaze your friends, families, and most of all, yourself!
