The Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge is an extreme event that allows individuals and teams to test their endurance over a 24-hour period while raising funds for children in need. The 2024 Challenge will begin at 10:00 am on Saturday, Aug.10 and conclude at 10:00 am on Sunday Aug.11, 2024.

It is held at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. test track in Lafayette. The 2-mile test track provides a safe environment, especially for night-time riding, with no motorized traffic or other hazards associated with rides on public roads. The track is part of an area designated by the National Wildlife Federation as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat, which will provide a unique environment for the epic bike ride.

Electronic lap-counting and timing services will be provided. For individual riders it is a race against the clock to see who can reach their personal mileage goal. The three men and three women accumulating the most miles in 24 hours will be recognized at a brief awards ceremony at the track immediately after the ride concludes. For teams (from 2 to 12 riders), the ride is like a relay, with only one member of a team on the track at a time. The three teams with the most miles will also be recognized for their efforts.

The Subaru CASA Challenge benefits the CASAs for Kids Fund. This fund supports the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program in its efforts to enrich the lives of abused and neglected children in Tippecanoe County. Personal fundraising pages are available for participants. Riders are encouraged to get sponsors to raise more money for the fund. The top three individual and top three team fundraisers will be named at the awards ceremony. The winners will be recognized on a traveling trophy.
