Welcome to Border Wars - A Southern Gravel Adventure. YEAR FOUR, FEBRUARY, 24 2024

Starting in Downtown, Franklin, Georgia at 8:00, 9:30 & 10:30 am we’ve created three fun-filled gravel adventures to help – finally – figure out which direction the trees on the Alabama/Georgia border actually do lean.

$85 for adults, $65 for juniors gets you entry into one bada$$ event, super comfy and cool to wear rider tee, well stocked aid stations, roving sag support, deluxe post ride spread of food and drink that's more than just a single meal and drink ticket , plus live entertainment and expo.

(Last year we had smoked pulled pork thanks to Jacob Dearolph, jambalaya courtesy of Michael Barman, plus grilled burgers, hot dogs and Beyond burgers by grill master Casey James. This year we will be adding Chili, both meat and veggie to the menu. We will officially announce the full spread once we get closer to the event.

10% of registration will go to MTB Atlanta to help build more trails and another 10% going to the Heard County Community Food Bank. The remaining proceeds will go to the East Point Track Club so we can put on more events throughout the year. (Track, Cyclocross, Gravel, Criteriums, Road Races)
