Solstice 100 Gravel Race

7:00 AM07:00

Solstice 100 Gravel Race

The Solstice 100 Gravel Grinder is a newer midwest gravel grinder that starts and ends in Malcolm NE. This ride will journey through the communities of Raymond, Valparaiso, Loma, Brainard, Dwight, Bee, Garland and Malcolm. You will experience all kinds of gravel roads from flat to hilly and super hilly. And just because we know you want adventure, we will even throw in a few MMR's. Cross your fingers it doesn’t rain. The field will be limited to 100 riders.

And new this year, we will also be offering a shorter option, a 50+ mile gravel grinder, called the "Solar Fiddy" But, the field will be limited to 50 riders total for the Fiddy. It will follow alot of the same roads as the southern half of the Solstice route. There will be one checkpoint at the halfway point, with limited SAG support.

The Solstice is a self supportive ride, so plan on bringing enough water and supplies to get you in between checkpoints.... roughly 30-40 miles apart. We will have water and very minimal SAG support at the checkpoints and one basic tool: a tire pump. If you want, you can stop into the local convenience stores or bars and do your own thing. This is your ride, you do what you have to do to make it to the end. You can’t cheat though. There will be checkpoints you must go through to be a Solstice 100 Finisher and earn your finishers patch! And if you want to quit… well, this is your ride, so you will need to find a ride home.

We called this event the "Solstice" for a reason.....it’s two days after the longest day of the year, so it’s gonna be HOT! Hot AND you will be traveling 50-100 miles on your own, so prepare yourself.

EVENT SPONSORS, ORGANIZERS, PROMOTERS, STAFF, and anyone having anything to do with this event ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY OR WELL BEING. We cannot stress this strongly enough…YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU!

Each participant is considered to be on a private excursion and remains solely responsible for any accidents in which he or she may be involved. No responsibility can be accepted for participants becoming lost, stranded, injured… or worse.

Be courteous and respectful at all times. Participants must obey all city, county, and state laws, and “Rules of the Road”. Each participant is required to have a clear front headlamp and a red tail light for the duration of the event. At race start and if continuing after dark participants are required to have a clear front headlamp capable of navigating in the dark (minimum 500 lumens) and a red tail light. Be careful and take care of yourself! Your safety is up to you. Bring plenty of food and hydration. Cellular service may not always be available but we highly recommend carrying a cell phone to contact someone in case of an emergency. Carry spare inner tubes and inflation system.

$45 Registration Fee Includes:

  • Entry into the Event
  • Custom Awards to the 1st Finishers in Each Category
  • Embroidered Solstice 100 Event Patch for all 100 mile Finishers
  • Finishers Award for all Solar Fiddy Finishers
  • Limited SAG Stops along the Route
  • Custom Solstice 100 Gravel Grinder T-Shirt (if registered by June 11th)
