Saturday, June 9th
The Armed Forces Cycling Classic’s Clarendon Cup is now in it’s 21st year, the Washington DC region’s premier Pro/Am races since 1998. Each race showcases a form of cycling involving a series of high-speed bike races that take place on a 1km course on city streets. The Clarendon Cup is known as one of the most difficult criterium races in the U.S. due to technical demands of the course and the quality of the participants.

The day starts at 8:00 am with various amateur races, followed by the women's Pro/Am race at 10:00am.

Beginning at approximately 11:30am, we feature Kids races — free for children between the ages of 9 and under – setting the stage for our last race of the day, The Clarendon Cup Pro/1 Men’s Invitational. Beginning at approximately 12:05pm, the Men's Pro Teams begin to roll out to race 100 laps (100km)! We guarantee an exciting finish as they race to be crowned winner of this prestigious event.

Sunday, June 10th
The day will begin at 7:00am with the Armed Forces Cycling Classic Challenge Ride, which offers a closed course open to cycling enthusiasts of all abilities, from casual amateur to serious racer. All riders must be off the course by 10am.

We are adding back an amateur race to kick the day’s racing off. The day’s featured event is the Men’s pro race with the second day of racing for Pro/Am teams competing in the weekend’s Omnium competition. The Women’s pro/am race will be held immediately following the amateur race. The Kids races will be held after that, followed by the Men’s Pro race.
