Saturday will be a fast and furious circuit race within the boundaries of the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch. You runners also get to enjoy most of the same course on a 5K trail course before the cyclists take off. Look for some great winding gravel roads, double track, and a mix of twisty single-track sections. Sunday is the biggie. Racers and riders have the option to pick one of 3 epic routes along the eastern Colorado slope. Monday treats you to a sweet mountain bike course highlighting the great trails within the ranch. Participants will get to take in amazing views of Colorado’s high 14’ers, and enjoy an optimum vantage point of the entire front range. All three days of Mad Gravel are fully supported with multiple aid stations.

This race is one of the first gravel events on the Colorado race calendar for spring of 2022. You won’t regret participating in this fully supported and ultra-scenic event. When the riding is over, the party commences with food, drink, music, and post-race festivities, all of which await you back at the expansive hall overlooking the venue. Not to miss!
