Downtown. Billings Starts Here!

Purple 5k & Downtown Crit

DowntownCritLogo2014Downtown Crit – Sunday, September 21, 2014

The Downtown Billings Alliance, Clark Marten, and Back Country Chiropractic are excited to present the 5th annual Downtown Crit! The Crit and the Purple 5K continue to grow as they empower the community to be actively involved in the fight against homelessness. All proceeds from the races go to the Spare Change for Real Change program. Over the last 5 years, these events have grown such that, as of this year, the Spare Change for Real Change program has granted over $35,000 to local organizations that work to alleviate homelessness through education, housing, social services, and re-integration.

The race begins at 4:00pm Sunday evening under Skypoint. The Crit is a criterium-style urban bicycle race that takes place in the core of Downtown, offers an exciting course, and accents our bike friendly city. Following the race will be snacks, beverages, music, and an awards ceremony.



We are in need of Volunteers to be course guards for the CRIT! The race begins at 4pm and you will be done around 7pm. If you’d like to volunteer CLICK HERE
