About the Gravel Challenge

The Race itself has three distances, 100, 50, and 25 miles route. With 90-95% of each course is on gravel with a few miles of level B, blacktop, and a bike trail.  There are hills in this area of Iowa. Some rollers, but mainly steep semi-short climbs that will get the legs going no matter what level of rider you are. The estimated average for climbing is 100 feet per mile. If you are looking for an additional incentive for your spring training we are doing a custom prize for any rider who breaks the 8-hour mark on the 100-mile course, That’s only a 12.5 MPH average!.
