Challenge Accepted! All Systems Go for August 7-8!

This past Thursday, the governor of the State of Michigan announced that all COVID-19 restrictions on both indoor and outdoor gatherings will be lifted on July 1. This will allow us to hold the 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge with no restrictions! We are planning to hold the event just as we always have, with everything we have always done, just the way we have always done it!

The 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge will be held the weekend of August 7-8, 2021!

You can arrive and start setting up at noon on Friday, August 6. The 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge will start at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday, August 7 and conclude at 8:00 a.m. EDT Sunday, August 8.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked through the process and logistics of rescheduling the event. We are just as excited as you are to be able to hold the event this year, and we can’t wait to see you there!

Sign up today and tell your friends – Challenge Accepted!


Registration continues for the 38th annual National 24-Hour Challenge on August 7-8, 2021. Have you accepted the challenge? Over 125 riders can’t be wrong – they have already accepted the challenge and registered for the 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge.

This year, all registrations must be made through Registration closes at 6 p.m. EDT on Friday, August 6, 2021. If you want the t-shirt and window decal, or want to participate on a team, you must register no later than June 30.

We are asking all riders who rolled over their registration from 2020 to visit to verify your information and make sure we have the correct information for you.

We encourage anyone who wants Support Team services to register soon as we have a limited number of openings and the Support Team services will sell-out.

We will not be mailing printed brochures, so be sure to download the 2021 Registration Information from and forward this email to your friends.


You know who you are! Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the National 24 Hour Challenge! When the date changed, we cleaned out all of the previous volunteers from the sign-up website, because we did not want to assume you could volunteer on the August 7-8 dates. If you signed up earlier, please sign-up again. If you have not signed up yet, please do so today at:

Please consider volunteering early so that you get the position you want, and so that we can see what positions we will need to work on filling.

If you have questions or want more information about volunteering, email Kathy our volunteer director.

Thank you volunteers – you make the National 24 Hour Challenge happen!
