FAQs

WHY DOES THE SUMMIT CHALLENGE HAVE A FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENT? 

The Summit Challenge is a fundraiser for the National Ability Center. Our mission is to empower individuals of all abilities by building self-esteem, confidence and lifetime skills through sport, recreation and educational programs. Your fundraising minimum helps us continue to provide services and opportunities as well as raise awareness for the organization.

Our fundraising minimum is based on similar cycling events of this scope both within Utah and throughout the country.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT REACH MY REQUIRED FUNDRAISING MINIMUM? 

If you do not reach your fundraising minimum by Friday, September 22nd, the credit card you provided will be charged the remaining balance.

AM I ALLOWED TO PAY MY REQUIRED FUNDRAISING MINIMUM UPFRONT? 

We encourage you to fundraise and help spread the mission of the National Ability Center with family, friends and co-workers. We understand that fundraising is not for everyone. If you prefer to pay your fundraising minimum upfront, please enter your required amount in the Minimum Fundraising Requirement under ticket options.

ARE THERE ID REQUIREMENTS OR AN AGE LIMIT TO ENTER THE EVENT? 

All ages and abilities are welcome to join us for this event. If you plan on enjoying an adult beverage, you will need to show ID, so remember to bring it with you the event. If you are planning to ride with a child or someone needing special assistance, please contact Jess Roising at jessr@discovernac.org to make needed arrangements.

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AFFECTING SECTIONS OF THE 2017 SUMMIT CHALLENGE?  

We are in regular contact with construction representatives from the state, counties and municipalities that are affected. In some cases, construction is projected to be completed before the Summit Challenge (SR-248 between US 40 and Kamas). In some cases, the contractor understands our needs and will be taking the day off on August 26 to accommodate our riders (SR-32). Road construction happens, and we will monitor and adjust as needed to ensure a safe and enjoyable route.
