The Athens Gravel Challenge

  • 1 High School Road The Plains, OH, 45780 United States (map)

Welcome to The Athens Gravel Challenge, a gravel race hosted by Team Athens Cycling, now in its second season. The first annual event (the trial run) was held September 15, 2018 and had a modest group of 'guinea pigs' willing to try out the 2 awesome courses departing from Eclipse Company Township, winding through many hills and dells over a mix of paved and gravel roads, and ending up back at the Eclipse Company Store where they enjoyed mouthwatering burgers and cold refreshments as well as received their custom trophies (top 3 finishers of each category)! See the pictures of the riders ready and eager to set out on the inaugural ride!
