Dirty Kitten Gravel Race
A gravel road race on private farm roads at the base of Cedar Mountain in Rapidan, Virginia. The area is truly a gravel enthusiast’s dream as well as a beautiful wildlife haven.
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Locust Hill Farm encompasses over 5,000 continuous acres of privately-owned land. Only 90 miles from the center of Washington, D.C., the farm is surrounded by untouched, historic land and borders Cedar Mountain (a.k.a. Slaughter’s Mountain) where a historic Civil War battle took place in 1862.
This race will explore Locust Hill Farm and Preserve on privately-owned gravel farm roads that run along the Robinson River, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through open fields, and cross wooded forest trails. The course is 100% unpaved with the majority of the terrain being gravel farm roads with some dirt and grass double-track sections. The gravel varies from smooth, groomed roads to rough, choppy, bumpy sections with the possibility of some mud if we have rain. The race will be run in 3 separate groups (see below) starting 5-10 minutes apart. There is a possibility of starting the Full Purrito “Elite” field separately as well.
Distances: Big Dirty Kitten (~60 mi), Dirty Kitten (~40 mi), Little Dirty Kitten (~20 mi)
