From the Promoter:
The Swamp Fox Gravel Fondo (SFGF) will take place on the gravel roads in and around the Francis Marion National Forest just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. The forest is named after the revolutionary war hero Francis Marion, who was known to the British as the Swamp Fox. He used these swamps, creeks and forest areas to ambush and hide from the British and was depicted in the movie “The Patriot”.
The SFGF is a minimally supported gravel fondo with routes of 50 and 100 miles. There will be a minimum of one aid station for the 50-mile option and a minimum of two aid stations along the 100-mile option. Riders should be prepared to fix anything that may come their way (flats, mechanicals, etc). The forest is remote and cell phone reception is not guaranteed. Please plan accordingly. Post race food (included) will be provided by Backdraft BBQ. Custom SFGF 100% cotton event T-shirt is included in your registration.
