Construction delays due to weather in the East 9th district forced the Tour of Lawrence to make a course change to Sunday’s Event.  However, Necessity can be the mother of invention, and we are excited about the reinvented Sunday Crit.  Do not be fooled by the map. This is a challenging course with 94 feet of climb per lap.   

Access the course off of Noria Road, or East Hills Dr. Entrances will be barricaded but marshaled by volunteers who will allow you on course when it is safe to do so.
