The Mackinaw Gravel Race
May 30 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm$30.00
The Mackinaw Gravel Race course is a 20.37 mile circuit featuring just over 1,000 feet of elevation gain per lap. Racers in the 40 and 60 mile categories will then complete 2 and 3 laps respectively. There are several short and punchy climbs as well as a few sharp gravel descents. Gradients top out around 15%! We recommend at least a 32mm tire. You may be thankful for a 38mm filetread, especially if it rains.
This is a self-supported race! It’s only a 20 mile loop, so use the start/finish as an aid station if you need to for the 40 and 60 mile options. There are no gas stations or convenience stores near the course. Bring the proper amount of hydration, nutrition, tools, and spare tubes for you.
We will mark the Mackinaw Gravel Race course with signs and provide a Strava route. The course is not closed. Obey all traffic laws and be careful around blind turns and hills. There is usually very little traffic on the route. Fitness
