2017 Hotter N Hell Hundred

Hotter'N Hell Hundred

August 23 - August 26 2018
Wichita Falls, Texas, USA

The Hotter’N Hell Hundred is one of the oldest and largest cycling events in the nation. Fitness oriented riders and bicycle racers will come to Wichita Falls, Texas, from virtually every state and several foreign countries. They will set their calendars for the week of Aug. 24 – Aug. 27, 2017. 

The official HHH Endurance Ride start will be approximately 7:00 a.m. (official sunrise) on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017. The USA Cycling Road Race is Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017 with USA Cycling Criterium racing on Friday and Sunday. The HHH will continue to offer a mountain bike race on Friday, August 24, 2017 and a trail run on Sunday, August 27, 2017 as well. By the way, the HHH is always 9 days before Labor Day.

Several things happen during the Hotter’N Hell weekend. The activities that comprise the HHH are: Registration, Consumer Show, Spaghetti Dinner, USA Cycling Criterium Race, USA Cycling Road Race, the Hotter’N Hell Hundred Endurance Ride, an Off-Road bicycle race, off-road trail run along with entertainment food and fellowship at the Finish Line Village. In other words, HHH is not just one day, it is at least 4 days of challenging and inspiring activities.

Endurance cyclists will face wind and heat with the help of 4,000 event volunteers on routes up to 100 miles. The Hotter’N Hell Hundred route is rolling with some long inclines accentuated by incessant wind. With the huge consumer products show, off-road mountain biking and USA Cycling Races over the weekend, the Hotter’N Hell offers an awesome start and the greatest weekend on two wheels. If you are going to ride 100 miles, the best place to do it is at the Hotter’N Hell Hundred!

People ask what you get when you register for the HHH. It is a grueling day in the sun, so what does a rider get besides sore muscles, tired posterior, sense of accomplishment and several hours of pure cycling madness? There is no answer that fits all. Riders pit themselves against the road and elements for different reasons. What everyone does get is a ride T-shirt and water bottle, goodie bag, free stuff from the consumer show, his or her share of 15,000 gallons of hydration fluid, truck loads of fruit, pickles, thousands of helpers on the route and a hard-earned finisher pin.
