Join Emmitt Smith on September 30 for the 2nd Annual Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo charity cycling ride. The Gran Fondo courses are designed to accommodate the most avid of cyclists to the casual weekend rider. Emmitt designed the routes with a nod to his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys by paying tribute
to his football number, #22!
There are five routes to choose from; the Gran Fondo-100 mile timed route with a $10,000 purse, a 100k, 45-mile and 22-mile route along with a 2.2-mile family ride. Plan to stick around for the post-race party and enjoy a beer garden, live entertainment, family activities and awards ceremony. Proceeds will benefit Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities.
