Our premier fundraising event, the Fairfield Fifty had its beginning in 2014. Ellie's Heart decided to start its own fundraising bike ride after the Children's Heart Group did not host their annual ride. We added a 5K walk to the event to accommodate non riders. New for 2019 is a virtual 5K walk.
We like to say that we have a course for every rider and ability. We even have a family ride option. Distances range from 5K to a 50 mile ride.
Course begins and ends at Riverfront Park in Loyalsock Township.
