Courses

Three different courses of differing lengths. All the courses start with a ~2 mile neutral rollout from Dru Bru Brewery in Cle Elum. Once you hit the dirt, you are good to go. The first climb is not trivial and legs will be crying for mercy at the top, but that’s just the start. All our Teanaway Gravel courses will challenge you with tough climbs and technical descents where you’ll be glad for a good set of brakes.

GRiT Epic Gravel – 35 miles, 4000 feet of climbing

GRiT Epic Gravel L – 47 miles, 5200 feet of climbing

GRiT Epic Gravel XL – 68 miles, 8700 feet of climbing

Categories

We will be awarding the top three finishers at each race length in the following categories.

  • Senior Men (18-44)
  • Senior Women (18-44)
  • Senior Non-binary (18-44)
  • Masters Men (45+)
  • Masters Women (45+)
  • Masters Non-binary (45+)
  • Open Men (XL course only)
  • Open Women (XL course only)
  • Open Non-binary (XL course only)

Open category for the XL is for the fastest racers out there (e.g. cat 1/2)

And to the top female, male and non-binary finishers of the XL course, we’ll don you the Teanaway Top Dog and you’ll walk away with some extra schwag and a full ego.

All podium finishers get a first-annual GRiT belt buckle–these might be worth millions on Ebay someday.

*Your age is the age you are on the day of the race. And if your birthday happens to be on July 10, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. 😉
