VeloCity 2021, benefiting Grady Hospital, is just around the corner, so get ready for a fun and active day at Bouckaert Farm. The picturesque setting offers a variety of routes for our cycling and run/walk events – so you can find the perfect challenge, no matter your age or ability level.
And more good news about our location: an 8,000-acre property means plenty of space for social distancing! You can rest assured that the safety of you and your family, friends, and co-workers will be top of mind for us throughout your VeloCity experience.
If you prefer to participate virtually, you may register for any of the cycling or running events. Start training and raising money for Grady now and pursue your goal between Saturday, May 1 and Saturday, May 8, tracking your miles via our event app (coming soon).
Our riders, runners, walkers, officials, and volunteers’ safety and well-being are our top priority. This new location allows us to execute a live event in keeping with whatever COVID-19 safety protocols are in place come May. Our planning decisions are being guided by Grady’s medical experts and public health guidelines, and we will continue to keep participants informed.
