If you are looking for an epic gravel adventure look no further than the Migration Gravel Race in the wildlands of Kenya.
The “Not all Kilometers are equal. You will be tested!” event is a semi-supported four-day stage race across the wilds of the Maasai Mara National Reserve that will take place on 23-26 June 2021. It is 650 kilometres in length with 8000 meters of vertical climbing along the annual migration path of wildebeests.
The course is home to a large diverse wildlife population, including zebras, giraffes, antelopes, lions, cheetahs and, of course, millions of wildebeests, requiring all competitors to stay in a secure tent camp every night.
At an average elevation of 1900 metres, the challenging course rolls over dirt singletrack, game trails, rock outcroppings, peanut butter thick red clay, and bone jarring gravel roads. En-route aid stations and park rangers will help ensure all competitors stay safe.
Top pro riders like EF Education’s Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes as well as former WorldTour pros Laurens ten Dam and Thomas Dekker plan to participate.
The 2021 edition is already sold out, but if you want a once-in-a-lifetime safari gravel experience be sure to put your name on the waitlist for 2022.
