Continued from Above:

“Immerse yourself in a true gravel experience. The ride is a self-supported endurance gravel road event that takes you through some of the most beautiful clay roads in the country – maybe even the world! Thomasville is home to over 300 miles of clay roads in the interconnecting Red Hills Region that covers over 300,000 acres. Revel in the complete gravel adventure at your own pace whether it be race pace, party pace, or a sight seeing social pace (though recognition will be given to the fastest finishers).” –
