For a ticket price you’ll receive, a scenic tour of the Shenandoah Valley, tech t-shirt, stocked aid stations, SAG vehicle support on the course, and a great after party at the War Memorial Pool in Ridgeview Park. Each participant will be able to enjoy, pizza, subs, and beer from our very own locally owned and operated sponsor Seven Arrows Brewing Company! The Tour de Valley finishes at Ridgeview Park, War Memorial Pool where you can enjoy a hot shower and a cool swim.
