ABOUT THE QUILLEN 100
UPDATE July 13:
After careful deliberation along with guidance from the leadership at Quillen College of Medicine, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Quillen 100 Race. With the uptick in COVID-19 cases in the area, we do not think that we can safely host the race as intended. Although we are disappointed that it has come to this, we are excited about hosting the race in Spring 2021. Stay tuned for an announcement about the new date!
As a non-profit health organization started by medical students at East Tennessee State University Quillen College of Medicine, The Quillen 100 focuses on educating those in the community about wholesome lifestyle choices that lead to healthy heart practices through a cycling race held at Bristol Motor Speedway. The two races of the day include a competitive relay of 100 laps and a non-competitive relay of 40 laps. Cyclists of all skill levels are encouraged to participate, as the races hope to inspire exercise through intra-team motivation and collaboration.
*** For the 2020 Quillen 100, we will NOT be hosting a Community Health Fair. This was a difficult decision to make, but we feel that it is best to keep everyone safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We will be posting some helpful information here. The fair will return in 2021!
To support our mission, The Quillen 100 has partnered with the Tri-Cities American Heart Association. Proceeds from the Little Q and the Quillen 100 will be donated to the AHA.
