On behalf of the Iron Butt Association I am delighted to announce the Sedalia 1000.
For anyone attending the BMW MOA International Rally in Missouri later this year, we are pleased to announce the Sedalia 1000 long distance challenge. This is a special SaddleSore 1000 ride (1000 miles in 24 hours) organized and sanctioned by the Iron Butt Association especially for the Rally.
The Sedalia 1000 is four different rides. Two of the rides start from locations east of the really and two rides start from Denver but use different routes to ensure riders meet the requirements of a SaddleSore 1000.
The Sedalia 1000 allows riders to begin their ride between 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 14th and 11:00 a.m. Thursday, July 19; however, riders must finish in Sedalia 24 hours after they begin and no later than 11:00 a.m. Friday, July 20.
In an effort to simplify the documentation requirements, participants will be starting from one of three locations: Scranton, PA, Jacksonville, FL or Denver, CO.
Finishers will receive a distinctive certificate worthy of framing, as well as other Iron Butt Association gifts at a unique Pizza Party ceremony. Founded by Iron Butt Rally veterans during Daytona Bike week, the Pizza Party is an IBA custom steeped in tradition. Mike Kneebone, the IBA Chairman, assisted by Long Distance legends Paul and Voni Glaves will host the party and personally present each finisher with his/her certificate.
Pre-registration will be required in order to participate in this special event. We will announce the details, once finalized on the MOA forum. Registration will open as soon as possible.
Feel free to post any questions or if you prefer email me directly.
We look forward to seeing you in Sedalia.
Ride far safely,
