SAVE THE DATE!
Are you ready for 100 miles of chunky, flowing, red, dirt roads? Waverly, Alabama is home to some of the most highly concentrated dirt roads in Alabama. Starting at the folksy Standard Deluxe music venue, we will be cruising a 100 and 60 mile loop during a self-supported dirt road race. Whether you are just looking to finish this adventure or crush the competition, come on out and join us.

We will offer fully supported aid stations along the route (1 for the 30, 2 for the 60, and 3 for the 100). Those stations will include food and water, however if riding self supported is your style, then we very much encourage you. With limited aid stations, it is imperative that you carry enough food and water to sustain yourself in-between.
(we’ll get back to you on the timeline, we’re still planning the race. Don’t hate us.)
Support those who support us!
We'd have a mighty hard time getting this event off the ground if it wasn't for the support of our sponsors. Make sure to give them your business (and tag them in your Instagram posts!)
What does my race fee cover?
A Dirt Road Century Tee Shirt (color scheme changes year to year)
A post-ride meal and beverage provided by our sponsors
GPX route and a clearly marked course
Pickups in case of mechanical or human failures
Medically trained personnel in case of injury
An awesome venue, The Standard Deluxe - http://standarddeluxe.com/
What bike should I ride?
A (monster) cross bike with about 40c tires works well, so does a skinny tired hardtail mountain bike. We don't suggest running any tire less than 35c although some run 32's without problems.
What are the roads like?
Awesome. Chunky. About 80% dirt/gravel.
What gear should I bring?
Front and rear lights
GPS - With uploaded route
Food (200-300 calories per hour)
Water (2-3 liters)
A strong will
