Get Involved: Volunteer! Nothing is better than having someone with local knowledge help us out. You can sign up for a shift and race location here: https://gatewaycup.com/volunteer/
Host housing! Many of the racers travel constantly and look for ways to make their visit to St. Louis more affordable. If you have a spare bedroom or two (or four) you can offer to have athletes stay as a guest. Contact Amy Strahan if you have space to share: https://gatewaycup.com/stay
Bring the Family! We have kids races each day that get pro treatment. For $7 you get a bib number, ribbon, t-shirt, and a chance to be cross the professional finish line. Register each day on site. https://gatewaycup.com/just-for-kids/
Host a Party! Make the event even bigger by inviting friends, family, and customers to enjoy a great
day in one of the four great neighborhoods.
Participate! Saturday AM, we have a FREE charity ride on the Francis Park Course, The Ride to Unite. Come ride alongside the pros and with children from many local charity groups. Sunday on the Hill, Trailnet is hosting their Giro della Montagna recreational ride. https://gatewaycup.com/charity-rides/
