One route of the Community Ride to Obliterate Cancer, which returns to King County Aug. 8-10 to raise funds for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, will come through Issaquah.

With four ride distances to choose from — including the 25-mile, 50-mile and 150-mile courses — it’s the 100-mile course that will include a route through Issaquah on Aug. 10.

Last year, the three-day event raised nearly $2 million. New this year is a 1-mile route for kids.

Participants choose their distance to ride, register with a small fee, raise money or fund themselves (each distance has a corresponding minimum) and then show up Aug. 8-10 for a weekend of festivities and fitness.

If you’re not a rider, there are 750 volunteer positions that need filling.
