14th Annual Palos Meltdown Race and Festival Cancelled

COVID19 Update

Unfortunately, due to the Covid crisis, CAMBr has decided to cancel the 2020 Palos Meltdown. Upon consultation with the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, the Reopen Illinois Guidelines and CDC recommendations, we decided that it would be very unlikely that all the conditions necessary for a mass gathering event such as the Meltdown would be clear by the scheduled race date. We also felt that given the uncertainty when it might be safe to hold the event, that postponing the event for later this year also wouldn’t be feasible.

Fortunately, all the trail systems in the Chicago region are open, so get out and ride anyway! Let’s also hope the Covid crisis will be under control and we’ll be able to host another great Meltdown in early August 2021!
