Overview

The Gold Rush Gravel Grinder is the Black Hills Premier Gravel Road Race. It is a 110 mile long, single-loop route that will take you through the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.

Description

This area is rich in history and was once a big part of the great Dakota Boom and Gold Rush in the Black Hills. The event is intended to be a fun, yet challenging endurance gravel road race/ride that will use open public-access gravel and dirt roads, through the Black Hills National forest and into Wyyyooommming!

The course will consist of mostly gravel, some dirt, possible mud, and a bit of pavement (gasp)! while rolling over open prairie, meandering through beautiful canyons with flowing creeks, exploring the deep forest, and climbing to several spectacular vistas. This race is intended for people familiar to gravel riding that can average a minimum 10 mph pace. This is a semi-supported race due to limited access to water and cell reception, with over 7,000 feet of climbing!
