Downtown West Chester will be overflowing with excitement this Saturday. The Iron Hill Twilight Race Series makes its return for another year of pro racing in West Chester. The events kick-off at 8AM on Saturday at the Rothman Institute Amateur Trials. Head over to Bayard Rustin High School bright and early to see racers vye for a spot in the Amateur Criterium that evening.

Back in the borough, volunteer crews will be setting up for the main events. Don’t miss your chance to sign up the family for race day events!

Aside from race excitement, the family is sure to enjoy the day in other areas. The Benchmark Community Festival will showcase local businesses and Chamber members.
