Tour de BBQ Cycling Event and Youth Run Benefiting Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life -
Join us for our second annual Tour de BBQ Cycling and Youth Run! We are thrilled to move this event over to Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life. The mission of Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life is to promote proper hydration and prevent heat illness through education and supporting activities. We do this by educating and providing hydration and heat illness prevention resources and supplies into schools, sports teams, and activities for over 11,000 children in our state each year.
100% of proceeds benefit children's programming at Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life.
The Tour de BBQ combines cycling with BBQ and hydration stops. This event will take place in Bentonville, Arkansas. We will be adjusting our route this year. Routes will be released in early 2022.
Event features 50, 30, and 7 mile bike rides with BBQ Rest/Pit Stops on the Razorback Greenway Trail System and a 1 mile fun run with BBQ stop at finish line. We are excited to be combining the annual Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life Youth Run with the Tour de BBQ this year.
Last year over 600 cyclists and over 8 BBQ stops made this the MUST-ATTEND cycling kickoff event of the season! You will not want to miss it!
