The Assault on Mount Marion

May 21, 2023 - May 22, 2023


The Assault on Mount Marion is a sister event to the hugely popular Assault of Mount Mitchell event.   A shorter version and separate event altogether from the massive Mount Mitchell event. Picked as one of the best road cycling events in the Southeast, it is still a large ride at 74 miles but has nowhere near the vertical gain of the Mount Mitchell Assault. If completed in proper time, this smaller version gives you a slot for the Assault of Mount Mitchell.

The Assault on Marion is a 74.2-mile self-paced ride starting from Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina, and ending at Tom Johnson Rally Park Pavilion at 373 Resistoflex Rd., Marion, NC 28752.

The Assault on Marion began in 1994 to allow more cyclists to participate with those riding to Mt. Mitchell. Although it does not include the 28-mile trek to the top of the mountain, this event is as enjoyable and engaging as any with its rolling hills, multiple climbs, and compelling North Carolina scenery. It is a wonderful challenge for any cyclist, regardless of skill and experience.
