Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic Revamps an American Classic, Watch LIVE


The Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic, the new “Philly race”, is set to run tomorrow and will feature a fast 12-mile circuit course traveling through Manayunk, East Falls, Kelly Drive and Fairmount Park. The event will focus equally on the men’s and women’s teams with separate races and starting times.

For the first time in Philadelphia cycling history, the event’s prize money will be split equally with the men and women sharing a $60,000 total purse including $5,000 for the best climbers in the King of the Mountain/Queen of the Mountain competition. The women’s race begins at 8:30 am EDT and consists of a five lap, 60 mile circuit followed by the men’s 10 lap, 120 mile race at noon EDT.

The most exciting new feature of the race is the placement of the Start/Finish line at the top of the famed Manayunk Wall. The uphill finish serves to generate more excitement for teams and spectators alike shifting more cycling action and drama to this iconic location on the course.
