About the Route
The fundraising commitment requires you to personally guarantee the fundraising minimum whether or not you actually participate in the PMC ride. The fundraising deadline is October 1, 2023.

The Pan-Mass Challenge will not require riders or volunteers to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination to take part in PMC 2023.

If MMA or a relevant authority does impose such a requirement, a rider registered to stay on-campus but unable to provide adequate proof of Covid-19 vaccination must find off-campus accommodations; they will be entitled to have their MMA lodging fee either refunded or attributed to their fundraising balance.
