Flint Creek Endurance invites you to experience some of the best gravel in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. This challenge now in its sixth year. The ride starts by the Amphitheather in beautiful downtown Siloam Springs, AR. Riders will be led out of town and unleashed onto 25 miles or 50 miles of hard-packed, fast-rolling gravel backroads.
Riders are expected to be self-sufficient. This means you are responsible for carrying all your supplies you will need including water, food, tools, spare tubes, etc. We will provide a limited amount of sag support but that does not preclude you from taking care of yourself out on the course. If you are not comfortable supporting yourself for the full distance of your race, please consider shortening your ride distance and note our bail-out points. Part of what makes this challenge unique and different from most other gravel rides is that in August it’s HOT which adds to the challenge. 🙂
The full ride/race routes will be released several weeks in advance, and we certainly encourage you to come out and pre-ride the courses if you would like to. Until then, follow Flint Creek Endurance on Instagram and Facebook to see “teaser pics” taken along the routes. The routes this year will be different from years past, however, we will search for beautiful creek crossings again as it was a major hit in 2022.
This ride is a part of the Flint Creek Endurance Wellness Series of combined running and cycling events.
