Dirty Kitten Gravel Race

July 29 - July 30


An adventure gravel race on private farm roads in Rapidan, VA.  Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Locust Hill Farm & Preserve encompasses over 5,000 continuous acres of privately-owned land with approximately 20 miles of scenic farm roads. The course spans the historic farm on gravel & dirt roads that run along the Robinson River, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through open fields, and cross wooded forest trails. This area is a gravel & adventure cycling enthusiast’s dream and a beautiful wildlife haven.  One of the Best Gravel Events in the Mid-Atlantic for 2023, as rated by Strambecco.

The course is 100% unpaved, with most terrain being secluded gravel farm roads and some dirt/grass double-track sections. The roads vary from smooth, groomed sections to rough, choppy, bumpy areas with the possibility of some mud if there is rain. This is a two-day event. The 80 and 60-mile races take place on Saturday. The 20 and 40-mile races take place on Sunday. Each distance will have a separate starting field.  Each race takes place on the same 20-mile course with 1100 feet of elevation gain.

Dirty Kitten Productions produce the DIRTY KITTEN.   It serves as a partial fundraiser for our women’s “off-road” cycling team (Dirty Kitten Racing) and helps to raise money for local non-profit organizations in the surrounding area.  Your entry fee includes an amazing adventure-gravel experience, official start/finish & lap timing, full event results, partial ride support, on-course aid stations (2), post-ride food and beverages, commemorative event swag, and payout or merchandise prizes for the top 3-5 finishers in each category/field.

Registration opens in the Spring, along with an updated event route.
