Online Registration is closed

It is with great regret and personal sadness that I must announce that the 2020 San Bruno Mountain Hill Climb is canceled. We were not able to obtain insurance certificates through USA cycling until the 20th of December, which left us with little time to use them to obtain the necessary permits. Despite the best efforts of everyone at the American Tower corporation, given the late insurance, we were unable to obtain an encroachment permit for the top half of San Bruno Mountain. Without that permit, we will not be able to hold our event.

I am so sorry to the racers who preregistered. We had 30 additional preregistrations compared to last year. I was excited to see the increased registrations after two years of steady decline. We put a lot of effort into promoting the race this year which makes me even more sad about this cancelation. We will be refunding the money through BikeReg in full, although their office may be closed today so it will be refunded as soon as possible.

I am also sorry to the volunteers who worked behind the scenes to get this event going. There was a lot of effort put forward by numerous of people. I want to take this time to thank the volunteers who had already worked to set up the race as well as the ones who committed to coming out the first day of the new year and help us put on the race. It takes a lot of people to put on a successful event and I want to thank you for your commitment. It is not easy to put on a bike race, and this one is no exception.

I really had hoped we would be able to obtain these permits, but the shutdowns that most corporations have during the holiday season really made it difficult. With only two days left before the event, it seems impossible now. I want to thank the people involved with the permitting process both from our race as well as the government and private organizations which we had contact. Each of them did an amazing job and tried their hardest to work with us and get this event to happen.

Lastly, I would like wish everyone one of you a great racing season and apologize again to those who were planning on starting your race season with the San Bruno Mountain Hill Climb.

Please try and share this with as many people as possible in your personal networks so we minimize the number of people who try and show up.
