Cyclists, mark your calendars! Camp Kinser is gearing up for its bike race Sept. 22.

The 8.5-km (approx. 5.28 mile) course will take cyclists on long stretches through the Marine Corps base’ mid and south sections.

The race is broken down into two courses: Road bike for 42.5 km (5 laps) and mountain bike for 17 km (2 laps).

All participants will receive a t-shirt and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers will be awarded at a post-race ceremony.

Although this may not be as big as Tour de France or even Tour de Okinawa, a ride through Camp Kinser should be a great way to spend a Sunday. Registration ends online and at Camp Kinser Fitness Center on Sept. 20. All other MCCS fitness centers will accept in-person registrations up until Sept. 16.
