Distances: 84, 113 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

The Highlands Gravel Classic is a new event in Fayetteville, Arkansas featuring the beautiful Boston Mountain range of the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas – known as the Highlands! The event is organized by All Sports Productions – who promotes such events as the UCI 2.2 Walmart Joe Martin Stage Race along with many other road, mountain bike, cyclocross and gravel races and fondos.

The Highlands Gravel Classic will have two courses, both of which are contested on 95% gravel! The long course is the qualifier for younger riders and the shorter course is the qualifier for the older age categories.

The Highlands course is 70 miles / 113km with the start and finish at a beautiful private farm just outside of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Featuring miles of canopy covered gravel roads, riders can expect continuously changing terrain through the rural backcountry of the Ozarks – with over a dozen climbs – the longest stretching 2.9 miles / 4.7km. The highest point of the day is reached along a sprawling ridgeline after 33 miles at an elevation of 2,200 ft. – with views of the Ozarks Mountains rolling across the skyline.

The Farmlands course is 52 miles / 84km and utilizes much of the same course as the longer Highlands course, but with a cut through after 24 miles to join it back for the finish section.
