3rd Annual Mt Lemmon Gravel Grinder p/b REI
Race Details:

The 3rd annual Mt Lemmon Gravel Grinder will be held on Saturday, October 27th and features one of southern Arizona's most historic gravel/dirt roads located on the “back side” northern slopes of the Santa Catalina Mountains connecting the rural town of Oracle to the Village of Summerhaven, Mount Lemmon.

Riders will enjoy the remote rugged terrain and breathtaking open range views while challenging their physical and mental abilities in search of what it takes to grind out the course. True Grit!

When you return, all finishers will receive an award symbolizing your achievement and are encouraged stick around to celebrate and enjoy the vendor/expo, live music, tasty food, craft beer and cold beverages.
