The Almanzo Series
Northfield, May 17-18
Since showing up on the scene back in 2007, Almanzo quickly became Minnesota’s most infamous gravel race—feared and cheered alike for its grueling climbs and DIY ethos. And although the race has changed hands a few times over the years, it never lost its heart; the goal is still to encourage riders to dig deep and believe in their abilities in the face of an unforgiving challenge.
This year's Almanzo series brings riders to the gravel hills outside of Northfield. Ride options include a recently added 50-mile course, the Malanzo, the classic 100-mile Almanzo, the Royal 162, and for those looking for a multi-day event, the 380-mile Alexander. There’s no wrong way to ride this classic and uplifting gravel series and, like always, Almanzo is free to all those brave enough to enter.
