On the Capital Trail


The Sentara Cap2Cap presented by Dominion Energy will use an Open-Start format in 2024: you can start and finish anywhere on the Virginia Capital Trail!  Course support (Rest Stops and SAG) will be active between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM on the Trail on Cap2Cap weekend, Friday, May 10th and Saturday, May 11th.

When planning your ride, consider the location and time of the Party Zone, which is the only place you will be able to redeem your lunch and drink ticket.

Two Party Zones!

Both Party Zones will feature Early Morning Packet Pickup for that day's riders, Music, Beverages, Vendors, and Lunch!

Your Ride Day Choice Determines Your Party Zone
Whichever Ride Day you select during registration, and only on that day, the tickets attached to your bib will be good for lunch and a beverage at the corresponding Party Zone site.
