Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra
Whether you are new to ultra distance racing or a seasoned veteran, you will find the challenge you are looking for at The Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra. Choose from 70, 150 or 200 miles of the some of best big hills, small towns, old barns, rickety bridges, and B roads that south central Iowa has to offer. Riders should be prepared for anything. Conditions range from buff dirt roads underneath bluebird skies, to peanut butter gravel soaked by a cold fall rain. No matter the conditions, you will find yourself making friends and memories, and hopefully find yourself crossing the finish line before time runs out.
The Spotted Horse Ultra does not allow any support on course so rest stops and aid come in the forms of roadside convenience store stops. The route will range from blue skies and easy-going flat gravel to rough, hilly, and possibly horrendous weather. The Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra is long and tough with a heavy dash of minimalism. A race for the purists who love to suffer on gravel!
