Roughneck Gravel Roubaix – The McKinney 250

Loading Events

The Roughneck Gravel Roubaix that was founded in 2022 and is going into it’s third year as an event.  Many of completed the 100 mile distance, have asked us to add an Ultra, so we have created this for 2024 and beyond.  In the first year the event will be a 250 mile gravel road ultra, boasting >85% gravel, beautiful climbs in and out of the Allegheny River Valley and the Valley that changed the world.  The host town Titusville Pennsylvania is one of the most historical towns in the world that you may have never heard of.  Titusville is the home of the first modern production oil well, it’s a small town nestled in Northwest Pennsylvania that almost every major oil company can trace its roots back to, this town is the reason for the Sherman Anti-trust act, this town is where John Heisman played his High School Football, so to simply say this town is packed with history is an understatement.


The 2024 Route will be a 250 mile route with 21,000 feet of climbing.  The event will start Friday night May 24, 2024 and have a cut off time of 30 hours.  The final route is still being curated, as we design the routes, then thoroughly vest them for safety inspecting every mile both by car and by bike.  The route will be semi-supported with bag drops, natural springs, and on the second half access to the aid-stations of the other distances.  However, we recommend you treat this as a self-supported event as the region is very rural, with very few convenience stores, but there are quite a few natural springs!
