Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

The Hellhole Gravel Grind Prologue, 2-Day Stage Race and 1-Day Race will take place on the gravel roads in and around Hellhole Swamp in the Francis Marion National Forest. The forest is named for the revolutionary war hero Francis Marion, who was known to the British as the Swamp Fox. He used these swamps, creeks and forest areas to ambush and hide from the British and was depicted in the movie “The Patriot”.

The Friday evening Prologue will be an optional, time bonus event on an all gravel 6 mile loop around the Witherbee Ranger Station. The time trial style event will begin at sunset so headlights and tail lights will be required.

The 2-Day Stage Race will be approximately 72 miles each day with a different courses each day. The courses will be 90%+ of unpaved roads and trails. This is a true stage race with the lowest cumulative time over the two days determining the overall winner.

For those less ambitious, there will be a 1-Day 75 mile and 45 mile ride on the first day of the Stage Race.
