The IDIRTAROD 200 Gravel Challenge is exactly like its name: A challenge. The total elevation gain is over 12 000 feet at an average of 7000 feet above sea-level. The 200 mile race is divided into 4 stages of 50 miles each and is, generally speaking, hilly but fast. Stage 3 has been designed to be fast and downhill for the first 30 miles. On this section, racers will be able to enjoy the plains of Colorado at break-neck speeds and if you are running behind on time, this will be a great place to make up for it. However, it would be wise to save some of your energy for the last 15 miles of stage 4 because this is where the race will be won and lost. The last big climb is a real kicker in the… you know what.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ROUTES BELOW ARE FROM 2015.
WE HAVE CHANGED THE ROUTES FOR 2016 AND WILL LOAD THEM UP A FEW WEEKS BEFORE THE RACE.
