2020 Registration Information

2020 Registration Infomation

Registration for the 10th Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K\200K will open on December 1, 2019. https://www.bikereg.com/funk-bottoms-gravel-100200


The 10th edition of the Funk Bottoms Gravel will take place on Saturday, June 13, 2020, at 8:00 am in Glenmont, OH. 

The 10th edition of the Funk Bottoms Gravel will be held on Saturday June 13, 2020 in Glenmont, OH. Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder. To celebrate 10 years of the Funk we have come up with a very special course this year. Two races, one brutal course! A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders along some of Ohio’s most scenic backcountry roads. On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! The 200K race is an Ohio epic. It is a relentless and grueling climber’s course. The overall 200K female and male finishers will receive a free entry into Gravel Worlds in Lincoln Nebraska.

               Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, and 80% gravel & dirt roads. The Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K/200K is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. Our good friends at Hammer Nutrition will once again be providing support with Hammer Fuels before the race, and at the secret checkpoint. As usual, this year’s race will be an entirely new course incorporating various roads from previous years along with some new sections. This is a cue sheet race. The roads are open to normal traffic in the area.  Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV’s, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, it’s Funk time!


               Registration will be $35 before April 30th, and $40 after May 1st. All racers who register before May 31st will receive a T-Shirt.  Racers who enter the 200K will be eligible to earn points for the new Ohio Gravel Race Series.  

               The winners of each category will receive a custom trophy and case of Yuengling beer. 

There will be awards for the Top 3 in:
Men’s 100K open
Men’s 100K Masters
Woman's 100K open
Woman’s 100K Masters
100K Single Speed
Men’s 200K open
Men’s 200K Masters
Woman's 200K open

 Any racer doing the 200K in under 11 hours will receive the coveted Cook’em Kwick Hobo Stove, and their entry fee refunded.

               The Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K\200K will start at 8:00 am sharp at Glenmont Park 108 Main Street, Glenmont, OH   44628.

A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to the Holmes County Rails-to-Trails Coalition.
