The Summit Challange is Cycling Utah’s Event of the Year.

The Summit Challenge isn’t just another century. The ride raises money for the National Ability Center in Park City. This year, the NAC hosted riders from the Wounded Warrior Project, a national organization that works with vets returning from Desert Storm and Afghanistan and helps them to reintegrate into society with its strong peer to peer network. Riders from the Wounded Warrior Project participated in a group.
Those that did the 52 mile ride finished together and kept each other strong throughout. Another rider Jayson had the opportunity to take a hand cycle on the 18 mile ride. He had endured multiple surgeries and mental and emotional pain over the previous 12 months. He felt like he was flying over the 18 miles (despite a broken derailleur) and was visibly ecstatic at the finish. The ride for him seemed life changing. The opportunity that this ride gave to returning vets as well as to other disabled individuals is amazing. Additionally, the ride is well organized and follows beautiful routes throughout Summit County.
The Summit Challenge is our Event of the Year.

  1. The NAC does a great job of supporting the community as well as our troops that served our country and were wounded in action. I volunteered last year and had a great time. I would recommend anyone that is interested to contact Sarah at the National Ability Center and sign up for this great cause.
