On August 6 & 7, 2016, more than 5,700 riders will take part in the 37th Pan-Mass Challenge.

In addition the full 46-town, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, there are thirteen other routes of varying distances. There are three additional two-day ride routes, and seven one-day routes, starting as short as 25 miles. Learn more about the routes, and the different levels of fundraising, on the PMC website.

PMC Weekend is August 6th and 7th, 2016

This year’s two day rides are Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th, with Opening Ceremonies being broadcast live on WBZ-TV Friday night, August 5th from Sturbridge. One-day ride options are available on Saturday or Sunday.

5,700 Riders ages 13+

Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease, still more ride in honor of those in treatment and over 600 PMC riders and volunteers are cancer survivors. The PMC donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. In addition the PMC has over 3,300 volunteers and 200+ corporate sponsors.
