Event notes
Welcome to the 2021 “40 FIVE”
Race headquarters will once again be at the beautiful Sheltowee Camp (606-862-8973)

45 is a marathon cross country race (approximately 45 miles with 4,300 elevation gain)

The course starts with a 1.5 mile paved climb at 4%. This will sort racers out before hitting 8 miles of singletrack. Racers turn into roadies with a 5 mile section of pavement that take racers to the 17 mile gravel loop "Southern Loop". The Gravel loop includes the infamous "Middle Ridge"! An old dirt road with several water holes, choose your line wisely! After completing the Southern Loop racers return on the pavement to the singletrack in reverse direction with the finish line being in the parking lot of the Sheltowee Trace Trailhead. This course has something for everyone!

33 miles natural surface (trail & gravel)

11 miles pavement

This race can be done on a gravel bike, cross bike or mountain bike all have their advantages and disadvantages. That's part of the fun of this race, "What should I ride?" I personally would prefer a MTB. That being said we’ve had dropbar bikes finish in top 10 overall!

This category is for alloy hardtails, No custom built frames, no carbon parts, (no Shimano XT, XTR/SRAM X01, XX1), (No Rockshox SID Ultimate/Fox Factory forks) Bike must weigh 26 pounds minus bottles and storage packs. Top 3 bikes will be weighted at the finish!

Entry fee is NON REFUNDABLE.
