The King Challenge, held annually in October

The King Challenge is a cycling event to raise funds for Krempels Center. This event has a special connection to the King family, through the local cycle-racing legends Robbie and Teddy King, who are actively involved with supporting the ride. Three routes, of varying lengths, accomodate a wide range of cycling abilities and fundraising minimums are set at easily attanable levels. The event features lots of family-friendly activities, food, drink and entertainment throughout the day and a great post-ride party.

Due to social distancing mandates, the 2020 & 2021 5Ks went virtual as a fun, week-long event allowing participants to remain safe while still enjoying the opportunity to take part in this legacy race. Over 800 runners and walkers in 2020 and 2021 participated from the comfort of their homes, neighborhoods and favorite secluded routes for the most unique 5K experience anywhere (or ever)! All proceeds directly benefitted Krempels Center.
