On the heels of its inaugural year owning DK/UNBOUND Gravel, the Life Time team is expanding its off-road portfolio to include a brand new gravel event - The Big Sugar. This event will feature crazy amounts of elevation gain, rugged and loose gravel and the beauty of fall in Northwest Arkansas.
The new event will focus on celebrating the cycling community and is backed by the original DK/UNBOUND Gravel team, with the addition of Bentonville locals Nat Ross and Gabbi Adams. In addition, we have established a collaboration with Outerbike Bentonville that will mutually escalate both events and make the weekend a complete cycling party!
The course is filled with a variety of stunning trails- from gravel roads through scenic mesas, single track around Trinidad Lake and dirt roads up and through a winding canyon. Views of the Spanish Peaks and Fisher’s Peak, Colorado’s newest state park, follow you along the entirety of your run.
Elevation Gain: 50k is about 3,100’ and half marathon is about 900’
The ‘Rad isn’t just a race, it’s an experience! The ‘Rad offers a gravel ride and a run in the heart of eclectic Trinidad, Colorado.
