I think it should say '25 mile ride' instead of '25 mile run'. That is my guess. Also, if you volunteer and help with registration, you can get free registration and you have time to join the ride. I have done that for several years.

Also, the link to dmparks.org is broken. It looks like a desktop file link.

What time does the bike ride start? Can you do both the run and ride?
