Gravel Race - King's Cup Gravel Festival

Gravel Race

Are you ready to compete for the British Gravel Championship title? The Gravel Race is like no other in the UK, with a beautiful gravel route, podium places to fill and the chance to become British champion.

Event Description

The Gravel Race is the ultimate challenge at the King’s Cup Gravel Festival, with British Gravel Champions jerseys on the line. Racing distances are identical across the Men’s & Women’s categories.

You’ll race in your Masters age group, with each age group having just 150 places available, an individual start gate and time and officiating team.

The surfaces include hard packed gravel, loose chipping gravel, grass, dirt and sand. The routes are 100% off road and take in a beautiful route around King’s Forest. The tracks allow for bunch racing and overtaking, which makes the whole race exciting from start to finish.

The race distances for under 60 age groups is 78km over 3 laps and 60+ age groups will compete over 52km with 2 laps. The British Gravel Championships podium places will be awarded to the first three eligible riders over the finish line.

Many of the Gravel Race age groups will sell-out quickly, so register now to avoid disappointment and guarantee a place on the start line.
