10th Annual SLUG Cat Presented By Fat Tire & Mark Miller Subaru
May 21 @ 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM$5
Calling All Pedal-Powered Riders!
It’s time to dust off your bicycle, put your winter clothes in storage and get ready for the 10th Annual SLUG Cat Presented By Fat Tire & Mark Miller Subaru. Hosted in conjunction with SLUG Magazine’s Bike Issue, the alley cat–style bike race sends riders all over downtown SLC to win points, solve clues and play games as they race toward the finish line in hopes of winning the grand prize. The race takes place Saturday, May 21, with registration starting 4 p.m. at Saturday Cycles and a 5 p.m. race kickoff.
For the past 10 years, SLUG Mag has hosted the SLUG Cat bike race to celebrate SLC’s vibrant bike community. Inspired by the scavenger hunt–style bicycle races made popular by bike messengers in places like San Francisco and New York, SLUG Cat has become an unparalleled event in the Salt Lake community and is a must for all local riders, whether you’ve been cycling for years or are still on training wheels.
Competitors will be given a manifest of clues that direct them to locations around downtown Salt Lake City. They must decipher the clues and plan out a route to get to the finish as fast as possible and win the grand prize. Riders will race from location to location performing challenges and tasks along the way to earn points that will bolster their score. The race ends with a party, awards ceremony and prizes at the SLUG Mag HQ with music provided by DJ Nix Beat.
SLUG Magazine is still committed to the health and safety of the community and will continue to follow the state’s rules and regulations for events. This includes sanitation procedures and proper PPE for staff and participants at the event.
Get ready to work those calves at the 10th Annual SLUG Cat Presented By Fat Tire & Mark Miller Subaru!
