This year the Catoctin Challenge is pleased to be raising funds for Camp Greentop with the League for People with Disabilities. 

Camp Greentop with The League for People with Disabilities provides recreational programs at a camp, located in Frederick County Maryland, for youth and adults with disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome and traumatic brain injury. 

The Catoctin Challenge provides cyclists with great food, entertainment, ice cold adult and other beverages, and surprise entertainment. This is a you-don't-want-to-miss great bicycle ride.

We limit our participants to 150 riders so that we can treat them right! No long lines, no hassle registration - just a great scenic and challenging route, fabulous entertainment, and delicious food. 

The rides begin in Frederick or Thurmont, Maryland, depending on your route and will lead you through the Catoctin mountains and into the Lodge in Blue Ridge Summit, PA.  You spend the night, have fun, and cycle back to Frederick the next day. 

You have a variety of routes to choose from - and we have something for all levels of riders.

-23 mile David G vs Golliath route

- 35 mile Jimmy's Angels route

- Steve Carrol Marlboro Man 50

-The Chicks Dig Fil Metric

-The Mark Schneider Memorial Century 


Fundraising is easy because you will be given access to your personal fundraising website when your registration is received. Each rider is asked to raise at least $300 - but imagine how much good you can do if you raise even more.
