Event 6 of 6 in the Southeast Gravel SeriesFor the season finale, we bring you someplace new. Most of you will need a map just to find out where Kershaw is. Find out why we scoped out this area and why it was a "must add" to the series.
Very unique course!Situated on the "fall line" of South Carolina (we have 2 events that are run on the fall line), means the ground surface is ever changing. Smooth gravel, chunky gravel, mud, and even sand. . .all in a matter of a few miles.
Challenging CoursesAs many of you found out from Saluda last year, just because there's not a lot of elevation gain does not mean the course will not be challenging. With the amount of varied surface types, this will be a true test of both your physical fitness and your choice of equipment.
A Beautiful Lakeside SettingIt will liklely be hot in late August. The start/finish, parking, and events are all on a beautiful lake in Heath Springs. Bring your swim trunks to hop in the lake and cool off after your event. You can wash away the sand and mud and reminisce about the event.
Double Points!Just like 2022, we will be offering double points for the final event of the series. Kershaw is an amazing course, and we want to encourage everyone to make the trip, so lets sweeten the pot a bit.
What People are Saying
“ This course is right on the fall line, that means LOTS of chainging surface types! Just when you think you have this course figured out, you hit a sand pit!"
Sunrise Lake Dr, Heath Springs, SC 29058
The beautiful Sunrise Lake in Heath Springs will be the venue, as well as start/finish for the event. There is parking on site, and overflow parking just one half mile away. Enjoy a post race beer sitting beside the lake, jump in the water to cool off, and stick around to cheer on your fellow riders as they complete their event.
Camping / Lodging options
Small campers and tents can camp onsite on Friday night as there is not a ton of parking available on site.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a race?
Some people will race the course, some will ride to finish. You are free to go as hard as you want, but the rules of the road apply.
How many rest areas?
The long course will have two rest areas and the short course has one. They are stocked with water, drink mix, and snacks.
If I have a mechanical will you fix it?
This is a self-supported event. This means you are expected to bring tools and parts with you to fix your own mechanical and have the knowledge to fix it. If you have a mechanical that can not be fixed we do have sag support, although there may not be cell service and the support vehicle may be far away.
Is the course marked?
We try to mark the course extremely well. That being said, in every event there are people who rely only on the course markings to guide them and up up off course. It is *extremely* highly recommended to download the gps file we provide.
