Locust Hill Farm and Preserve

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Locust Hill Farm encompasses over 5,000 continuous acres of privately-owned land. Only 90 miles from the center of Washington, D.C., the farm is surrounded by untouched, historic land and borders Cedar Mountain (a.k.a. Slaughter’s Mountain) where a historic Civil War battle took place in 1862.

The race explores Locust Hill Farm and Preserve, a historic farm, on privately-owned gravel roads that run along the Robinson River, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through open fields, and cross wooded forest trails. This area is truly a gravel enthusiast’s dream as well as a beautiful wildlife haven.

The Race

The DKGR course is 100% unpaved with the majority of the terrain being secluded gravel farm roads, as well as some dirt/grass double-track sections. The roads vary from smooth, groomed sections to rough, choppy, bumpy areas with the possibility of some mud if there is rain. DKGR 3.0 is a two day event. The 80 and 60 mile races will take place on Saturday July 24th. The 20 and 40 mile races will take place on Sunday July 25th. Each distance will have a separate starting field with details TBA.
