Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty
Conquer the North Georgia mountains on September 27 for the 32nd annual Six Gap Century and Three Gap Fifty. The Six Gap Century’s challenging 104-mile route features 11,200 vertical feet of elevation gain across six of the steepest climbs in the Appalachian Mountains. The most notorious climb of the century, Hogpen Gap, averages a gradient of seven percent for 7 miles, with multiple sections as steep as 15 percent. The Three Gap Fifty offers a 58-mile course with 6,385 vertical feet of climbing. A 35-mile Valley Ride offers a scenic mountainside route with rolling hills to Turner’s Corner and back.
NEW “no risk” refund policy has been adopted for 2020. Should the event be cancelled later in the summer due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, participants can defer payments to 2021, request a refund, or donate the registration fee to the beneficiary partner, ConnectAbility.
NEW divisions have been added for King of the Mountain and Queen of the Mountain recognition. Organizers have expanded the age divisions from three to five KOM & QOM categories on each of the Six Gap and Three Gap routes. There will be 20 total award winners. Divisions are 29 and under, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 +. For the Three Gap Fifty, the KOM and QOM honors will be awarded based on lowest climb times on Wolfpen Gap. For the Six Gap Century, honors will be given for the lowest combined climb times on two climbs – Hogpen Gap and Wolf Pen Gap. Each winner receives a custom kit, jersey and bib shorts.
Registration is limited to 2,500 riders. Each registration includes a custom T-shirt, snacks and beverages at rest stops, access to locker rooms and showers, and a post-ride spaghetti dinner (from 11am-6pm).
