Distances: 50, 100 km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

Last years race turned out great and it seemed everyone had a great time. So, the race is on again for 2018! We are planning to offer the 100k+ as the main event of the day, but also want to offer a shorter course for anyone who doesn't want to tackle the full 100k. The short course will be somewhere near half of the 100k. Don't worry, it will still have hills and gravel ;)

Last year, we had racers from 11 states attend. People from the far North, from the plains of Kansas, South in Mississippi and East in Virginia made the trek to ride the Shawnee Hills. We hope to have even more states represented this year.

If you are looking for an awesome route, great challenge, killer scenery, beer, food and cool peeps to hang out with for a day, come check it out.

Thanks for your interest!

Registration opens at 8:00am CST on Saturday 11/18.

A couple changes to note are :

The addition of a shorter route offering for anyone who doesn't want to tackle the full 100K course. The shorter route will be somewhere close to half of the full distance. There will still be gravel and hills, just not quite as many miles of them. We hope that some who may be reluctant to tackle the longer gravel distance, may jump on this chance to be part of a great event.

The Carbondale Bike Surgeon has stepped up and is offering CASH for the 2 fastest male and 2 fastest female finishers of the 100k event this year. The prizes will be $200 for first and $100 for second. The third fastest male and female will receive free entry into next years event. This is for the overall fastest finishers.
We have added a referral discount this year. If you share the link provided to you after you register and 5 of your friends use that link to register, you get a refund of $10.

St. Nicholas Brewing Company is stepping up again to provide the post race hydration.
