Finish Line Festival

When you cross the Finish Line and arrive from your adventure you can expect a warm welcome back to Harrisonburg.

After you announce your arrival by ringing the giant Swiss Glocken bell, Finish Line Attendants will present you with your Finisher Medallion (for Valley View Challenge, Mt Solon Metric Century, Shenandoah Mountain Century and Shenandoah Mountain Adventure riders) or a selection of Swiss Bells (for Alpine Loop finishers who arrive by 6 p.m), volunteers will valet park your bicycle and make sure you have a fresh bottle of water and a cold washcloth to freshen up.
