Plan Your Day at The Race

The Easton Twilight Criterium is an exciting event that offers cycling and running races on a fully enclosed course. The downtown area features a 0.7-mile course with six turns, which makes it a challenging course where skill will make all the difference. A short uphill finish on Northampton Street will reward the strong and savvy racers in front of thousands of Easton’s Centre Square fans. The entire course will be surrounded by fans who will be cheering and ringing cowbells while enjoying food and drinks at the many restaurants and bars.
