The Sturgeon 100 is a self supported gravel road race through the roads of the Ottawa National Forest. There will be 100 kilometer (Metric) and 100 mile (Imperial) options. The first 60 miles will be a loop north of Kenton, circling the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness Area. Imperial racers will loop back through Kenton and complete a loop south of town. Surfaces will range from pavement, to rocky two tracks, to sandy roads, to wet clay and probably everything in between- including miles and miles of impeccably maintained gravel forest highways. There will be a tough climb or two as you cross over the Sturgeon River a couple times.
After we wave you off the start line, you are on your own. No aid stations. No SAG wagons. No sweeps. It's you and whatever you bring with you that will get you down the course. Unplanned aid is allowed from other competitors and the general public, but don't count on seeing much of either- this area is fairly remote. Imperial riders may resupply in Kenton at their vehicles or any of the local businesses.
