Whether you are new to ultra distance racing or a seasoned veteran, you will find the challenge you are looking for at The Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra. Choose from 150 or 200 miles of the some of best big hills, small towns, old barns, rickety bridges, and B roads that south central Iowa has to offer. Riders should be prepared for anything. Conditions range from buff dirt roads underneath bluebird skies, to peanut butter gravel soaked by a cold fall rain. No matter the conditions, you will find yourself making friends and memories, and hopefully find yourself crossing the finish line before time runs out.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Iowa Wind and Rock has been rescheduled and will be run alongside Spotted Horse for 2020. Registration for Iowa Wind and Rock 340 mile categories will reopen to the public when general registration for Spotted Horse opens and will be available for entry on the same fee schedule as Spotted Horse. While Iowa Wind and Rock is a free to enter event in a normal year, combining this with Spotted Horse for 2020 means that we are not able to extend the free entry beyond those already on the Iowa Wind and Rock roster.
