Grit Gravel Grind
August 24, 2019 @ 7:00 am – 5:00 pm
Grit Gravel Grind is a new timed cycling ultra-endurance gravel road race presented by Timer Guys! This race will start from El Dorado Lake outside of El Dorado, Kansas in the beautiful Flint Hills. Road bikes are not recommended. All participants receive an event shirt and all finishers receive a custom event medal. Age group awards will also be presented.
Races will be held on dirt/gravel country roads. Surfaces may include but are not limited to: dirt, rocks, mud, gravel, dust, sand, and a short stretch on pavement. The surfaces are varied and have the potential to be challenging. The country roads are open to traffic and wildlife. Each rider is expected to obey ALL traffic laws. All distances will start on asphalt roads from the lake for the first and last 3 miles. Aid-station checkpoints with water and support will be available approximately every 10-12 miles. (Course maps will be published by early summer at the latest.)
