UPDATE!!!

We have made a couple changes to our registration for the Gold Star 500.

Change 1. The Gold Star 500 full 5-day registration (same price $450) has been extended until 6 Sep 21. If you complete your registration prior to 28 Jul, you will receive your jersey prior to the ride. If you complete the registration 29 Jul - 6 Sep, you will receive your jersey sometime mid-late October.

Change 2. We have added a Gold Star 500 option that is a 3-day/300 mile (23-25 Sep 21) ride. Registration is open and same rules above apply. Registration is open until 6 Sep. If you complete your registration prior to 28 Jul, you will receive your jersey prior to the ride. If you complete the registration 29 Jul - 6 Sep, you will receive your jersey sometime mid-late October. You will have to get to Lawrenceville, IL by Wednesday, 22 Sep in order to start with the group at 0700 on 23 Sep. 

There are no other registration options available (ex. single day or team).

As always, we will limit the number of total riders to 60 participants. Once we meet that limit, we will shut down the registration.

On September 21, 2021 cyclists will begin a 500-mile bicycle journey, known as the Gold Star 500, through communities like Decatur, Champaign, Paris, Lawrenceville, Mt Vernon, Centralia, Salem, Vandalia, Effingham, Pana, Taylorville, and Springfield. This is our fifth annual event (virtual in 2020) which works to preserve the legacy and honor of those military service men and service women from Illinois who have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of service to this great nation. This 5 day, 500-mile cycling event will use proceeds to fund scholarships in the name of our Fallen Military Service Members, thus preserving their legacy forever.

This ride raises funds through event registration, fund raising and generous donations, and uses those funds to carry on the names and the stories of the Fallen Military Service Members. The Gold Star Mission intends to help those in need, through the establishment of scholarship opportunities. The scholarships preserve the Fallen Military Service Member's name forever and shows the same act of compassion to others which their service exemplified.

Want a small taste of what it is like to be on the ride, watch this video. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rj415bg4wjnt5z5/gsm%20-%20peoria%20welcome%20%2810.2.19%29.mov?dl=0
