We’ve worked tirelessly over the past months to develop and deliver an exciting and COVID secure gravel event amidst these unprecedented times. We had been hoping to welcome you all to the King’s Forest in a months time. Unfortunately we must announce that due to the latest pandemic development and new regulations introduced by the government this week, it is no longer possible to host the festival.

Just over one month out from the King’s Cup Gravel Festival and the inaugural British Gravel Championships we are excited the reveal the routes that await riders heading to the King’s Forest Suffolk in late October.


New date for the King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020

The King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020 has been rescheduled to October 23-25, 2020. Unfortunately, the current pandemic development, government guidance and advice from authorities has made the original event date unfeasible. We have made the appropriate arrangements and look forward to welcoming you to the King’s Forest, Suffolk in late October.
