Rockford

Rockford es la segunda ciudad más grande de Illinois fuera del área metropolitana de Chicago. Está ubicado a solo 1 hora de Chicago y de su principal aeropuerto internacional, Chicago O'Hare (ORD), lo que hace que el viaje a GFNY Rockford sea fácilmente accesible desde cualquier parte del mundo.

Rockford tiene muchas actividades como el Discovery Center Museum y el Burpee Museum of Natural History, así como un área del centro llena de tiendas y excelentes bares y restaurantes. Fuera del centro de la ciudad, hay muchas opciones de compras y restaurantes, especialmente en el gran centro comercial y hotelero de la I-90 en la parte este de Rockford.

Hay muchos senderos para bicicletas en toda la ciudad que agregan una forma divertida de explorar la ciudad, sus parques y actividades mientras estás en la ciudad durante la semana de carrera GFNY. El río Rock es la principal atracción natural que atraviesa el corazón de Rockford y varios puentes conectan la ciudad. Searls Park y Anna Page Forest Preserve son hermosos parques que debe visitar.

La Ruta

La Expo previa a la carrera y las festividades posteriores a la carrera están organizadas por el Venetian Club. La línea de salida y llegada de la carrera está convenientemente ubicada justo al lado del Venetian Club, en Elmwood Rd. Después de salir del Venetian Club, dirígete hacia el norte hasta el circuito a través del condado de Winnebago. Los atletas de media distancia harán el circuito una vez, los atletas de larga distancia lo recorrerán dos veces.

Disfruta de una carrera rápida sobre colinas ondulantes en condiciones de verano a través del pintoresco norte de Illinois. Pasarás por la increíble naturaleza: Nygren Wetland Preserve, Williams Tree Farm, The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms, Colors Sands Bluff Nature Preserve, Ferguson Forest Preserve y a lo largo de los ríos Pecatonica, Sugar y Rock.

Aprovecha las rectas largas en la primera mitad del circuito para recorrer la distancia rápidamente con tu grupo. Las primeras millas en las largas carreteras rectas darán lugar a ataques, mantente cerca del frente del grupo para cubrir los ataques y tener compañía en el grupo para la recuperación.

La parte de regreso del circuito tiene pequeñas y sinuosas carreteras y giros, lo que hace que el posicionamiento de tu pelotón sea una parte importante de tu estrategia de carrera. Debido a los giros y vueltas, los ataques se convertirán en momentos decisivos de carrera que fragmentarán los grupos.

Afortunadamente, al estar en plena forma de verano, tus piernas pueden cubrir las variaciones de velocidad y esfuerzo. Disfruta de los pelotones que se unen y se separan y de las condiciones ideales para carrera de larga distancia para aprovechar al máximo tu estado físico de verano en GFNY Rockford.

LA RUTA LARGA ES UNA COMPETICIÓN: Solo los finalistas de la ruta larga son elegibles para clasificaciones de categoría y premios generales y de podio. Si deseas competir y ser clasificado en tu categoría, debes completar la ruta larga . El Top 10% de los finalistas en cada grupo de edad ganan un lugar en el Qualifier Corral en cada evento de GFNY World.

LA RUTA MEDIA NO ES UNA COMPETICIÓN: Los corredores de la ruta media recibirán su tiempo de inicio a fin, pero no se clasificarán según el tiempo de llegada. Todos los tiempos de llegada se enumerarán en orden alfabético.

Beneficios incluidos como parte de GFNY Rockford

EL JERSEY: Todos los corredores reciben un jersey oficial de GFNY Rockford, que es vestimenta obligatoria en la carrera. El jersey está diseñado en Nueva York y fabricado en Italia.

TIEMPO DE CHIP: GFNY Rockford es una carrera cronometrada. Cada atleta tiene su propio chip de cronometraje, que comienza justo después de cruzar la línea de inicio y se detiene cuando cruza la línea de meta. Los resultados de cronometraje estarán disponibles en gfny.cc/results.

MEDALLA DE FINALISTA: Cada finalista de GFNY Rockford recibe una medalla, sin importar la distancia que hayan completado. Todos los finalistas también obtienen un "Finish" hacia su medalla 3x2023 GFNY o la medalla 10x. Visita gfny.com/medals para obtener más información sobre las medallas multi-finisher de GFNY.
