Gettysburg Finish at Browns Ranch
Early in the afternoon on Sunday, participating athletes will complete their 112-mile journey from Arlington at the historic Brown’s Ranch on the northwestern side of the Gettysburg National Military Park.
This beautiful 232-acre private farm borders the Military Park and is being preserved as a working agricultural property. During the July 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, the house on the farm was used as headquarters for Confederate General A.P. Hill, commander of the 3rd corps for General Robert E. Lee’s army.
Cycling into Brown’s Ranch from Windbriar Lane, off Fairfield Road, athletes will see ahead the historic farm buildings at the end of a long private driveway. Athletes will be welcomed to the Brown’s Ranch Barn Party and Roast, featuring fresh warm food and a variety of beer, along with entertainment. Riders are anticipated between 1:00 and 1:30 p.m. The ranch opens to family, friends and the public at noon.
Note that parking at Brown’s Ranch will be limited to a small amount of vehicles, with family, friends, staff, and others parking along nearby Redding Lane, Diamond Hill Road, and Woodcrest Drive. ADA parking will be reserved on the street near the Brown’s Ranch entrance. Please leave Windbriar Lane and Boycott Drive open for cyclists to pedal through without having parked cars and foot traffic to negotiate. Carpooling is highly encouraged for participants who are not riding the scheduled buses to the Hyatt Regency hotel in Arlington, or to other destinations. Remote lot parking for visitors is at the Federal Communications Commission building, 1270 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, PA 17325. A shuttle will run loops to this lot during the day to and from the ranch.
