Kings Mountain Gravel Grinder (KMGG) is held in Uwharrie National Forest at the Badin Lake Recreation Area just outside of Troy, North Carolina.

This race will be similar to our Uwharrie Forest Gravel Grinder, but a little calmer without the "Jeep Climb" involved.  We will start/finish at the same location but will use different roads or a different direction on roads involved in UFGG.

Adventure Summit Uwharrie has asked us to partner with them and we can't be more excited about their idea!  Over the Adventure Summit weekend, we will be putting on a gravel race, mountain bike race and a trail run race around Uwharrie National Forest.


Our races will be a separate entity to the Adventure Summit.  Their idea is to have different promoters, like Trans-Sylvania Productions, put on their own specific events and then bring everyone together in a festival atmosphere at Adventure Summit Uwharrie.  They will have camping, vendors, music, food trucks, happy hour, and more.           


Included With Registration

What You Get With Registration

  • One well marked course

  • Event t-shirt

  • Post race meal (TBD from COVID-19)

  • Fully stocked aid station

  • And one epic day with friends

2020 Design TBD
