Ride for a Cause
Team Fundraising Program

On June 3, you could be part of the 31st running of the Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. With a century, metric century, 40-mile road, 27-mile gravel and 8-mile family fun ride, this iconic event delivers to each cyclist a meticulously organized, well supported and safe event. You will not want to miss the excitement and camaraderie of this annual pilgrimage to Castle Rock and a cycling tradition that has become synonymous with summertime in Colorado.  There’s more than just the miles….align your Subaru Elephant Rock experience, both training and the ride itself, with a cause!

The Subaru Elephant Rock will donate 10% of your team’s registration fees back to your organization of choice. In addition, Subaru of America will make a $2,500 donation to the team that raises the most dollars.  

There’s no time like the present, get your team together and raise some money for a good cause!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Assign a team captain and have the team captain click here to complete a Fundraising Team application.  Deadline to register your team is April 1st.
  2. The team captain will then need to go online and register for the event and create a team at elephantrockride.com/register.
  3. Once the team captain has created a team, he or she will need to inform all of their potential team members of that name, so they may select it when registering through our online registration provider, Events.com. Simply select “join a team”, click your team name and complete your registration.  
  4. The team captain is responsible for communicating with the event organizers and for overseeing the communication and recruitment of team members. Each team member must raise a minimum of $100 in support of your pre-determined organization of cause. All courses apply (100, 62, 40, 27, 8-mile family fun ride).
  5. Spread the word and good luck!

** If you want all your team member packets to be grouped and picked-up prior to the event, please select “Ride Weekend” as the desired packet pick-up location during the online registration process. We will then coordinate with your Captain to pick up all your team credentials at our office the week of  May 22 – 30.

If you have any questions or need further clarification about the program, please contact Amanda Knutson at amanda@clippedinevents.com.
