What is the Cascadia Super Gravel?


The Cascadia Super Gravel is Western Washington’s premier gravel road race, happening March 30, 2019 at Capitol State Forest, just outside of Olympia, Washington.

The Super Gravel features three distinct courses to challenge a full range of levels and abilities while delivering the same great race day experience for all. Each course will take riders through the majestic peaks and valleys of the rugged Black Hills that make up Washington's largest working forest. Riders at all levels will be earning every breathtaking mile with plenty of scenic views to suck you in and see you through to the same sweet after-party at the finish line.


So many options, one SUPER event!

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of bike should I bring?
The best bike for the Cascadia Super Gravel would be a gravel specific or cyclocross bike with a minimum of 32mm tires.  Mountain bikes are allowed.  Due to the challenging terrain we strongly advise disc brakes.

What's included with registration?
Your registration fee entry affords you a professional, well organized event; a well marked course; RFID timing with fast, accurate results; on-course mechanical support; one free entry into race day raffle; super stocked feed stations; hearty post-race meal and refreshing beer (21+)


How hard it he course? What are the roads like?

With three course distances embedded within an incredible network of gravel roads, you'll find a balance between epic, challenging and completely doable.  Don't think you can get off the couch after curling your favorite IPA for the last few months and do it.   However,  if you've been riding your bike consistently in preparation you should be able to complete the course.  The course is 90% gravel, ranging from hard, compact gravel, to loose gravel and dirt.  The first and last few miles are on pavement.  

What happens after the race?

Instant results will be available after the race with an award ceremony to immediately follow. Stay for the after-party to swap war stories over beer and a hearty post race meal.


Is the camping available?

Yes, tent camping and RV parking with hookups are available on site for $20. Additional lodging options are available within 20 minutes of the venue: airbnb.com | hotels.com
