It’s going to be tough.  It’s going to be epic.  And it’s going to be unforgettable.

The Red River Gorge MTB 100 is the first ever one hundred mountain bike race in Kentucky’s unforgettable Red River Gorge region.  Participants will find the true meaning of the word “epic” as they race for the finish line along a series of gravel and paved back roads with a little singletrack through the torturous terrain surrounding the Gorge.

Come ride through dark hollows, over sunlit ridges, past towering sandstone clifffs, and through clear forest streams and experience a journey that will test your endurance, resilience, and resourcefulness.

Packet pickup and check in will be at 4 Guys RV Park on October 12 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm EST and from 5:30am to 6:30am EST Saturday morning.  Additional details will be emailed to participants and announced on the race webpage closer to the event.

Waivers will be provided at packet pickup on Friday evening.  ALL RACERS MUST FILL OUT A WAIVER ON SITE AT THE TIME OF PACKET PICKUP.

The race will begin from 4 Guys at 8:00 am on Saturday, October 13, 2018 and the cutoff will be 7:00 pm that evening.  The race finishes at 4 Guys RV Park.  All racers must be off the course by sunset.  The big change in 2018 will be that you have less time to finish. There will be an 11 hour cutoff!

We will go back to the last weekend in September in 2019, but for 2018 we only had one date to choose from which means we have less daylight to play with.

Support crews and spectators will be asked to avoid certain sections of the course. These areas will be designated closer to the time of the event.

The weather in October in the Gorge can vary from hot and dry to cold and rainy.  Please prepare for any weather conditions. The race will go on unless there is local flooding or sever weather as the course does cross a few small to medium sized streams.

There will be five fully-stocked aid stations, medical support, traffic control, entertainment at the finish and food for all participants.  Non-participants can purchase additional meal tickets on site for a modest fee.

Two drop bag locations will be allowed.  Please limit your drop bags to 2 one gallon sized ziploc type bags with your name clearly written in black marker with a #1 on the first one and a #2 on the second.  They will be located at approximate milepoints 11 / 30 and 63.
