Kershaw Gold Rush
This is the season finale of the 6-part Southeast Gravel Series
. This year’s finale comes with a new location. Situated on the “fall line” of South Carolina, the ground surface is ever-changing. Smooth gravel, chunky gravel, mud, and even sand. . .all in a matter of a few miles. The specific routes have not yet been announced, but as is typical for the series events, expect a long course option of around 75 miles with plenty of elevation gain, a short course option of around 40-45 miles, and a beginner option of around 15-20 miles. Strambecco rates the event as one of the best gravel grinders in the Southeast
It will likely be hot in late August. The start/finish, parking, and events are all on a beautiful lake in Heath Springs. Bring your swim trunks to hop in the lake and cool off after your event. You can wash away the sand and mud and reminisce about the event.
The six-part Southeast Gravel Series, produced by Southeast Gravel, runs from March to August and include the Gravel Battle of Sumter Forest, Saluda Redbank 100, Race to Valhalla, Greenwood Gravel Grinder, Tryon Gravel Gallop, and Kershaw Gold Rush.
