2014 Seagull Century to be Held Sept. 27

1 May, 2014


The 26th Annual Sea Gull Century, Wicomico County, Maryland’s, largest one-day sports tourism event, will be held on September 27th, 2014. Registration for the 2014 SGC will open on May 15, 2014 (no registration before that date) and will be carried at the website, www.seagullcentury.org.

The ride will begin and end at Salisbury University on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

The 2013 ride on October 5 boasted clear skies and unseasonably warm temperatures as well as 7,100 cyclists. This was the 25th such ride to be offered. Registered riders ranged from age 7 to 88 and came from 35 states and Canada.

In Salisbury, hotels were booked and restaurants were full throughout the weekend. The Century is Wicomico County’s largest one-day tourism event and has an estimated annual economic impact on the Lower Shore of $2.5 million. Many pedal for charities and nonprofits, including Women Supporting Women. Proceeds also benefit Wicomico County’s Habitat for Humanity, Salisbury Zoo and student scholarships, among others.
