Soldier Cutoff Hillduro
Once known as Pisgah Preparation, the all new Soldier Cutoff Hillduro probably comes closer to conveying how epic this race is. Is it challenging, yes. Is it worth and totally accomplishable for a normal human, yes. But, come ready to climb hills like you’ve never seen in Iowa. If you have ambitions to ride climbs out west, this is great preparation for it.
The area around the Loess Hills State Forest is amazing and hilly and beautiful. The route for this race will swing around Preparation Canyon State Park and wind through the valleys of the Little Sioux River and Soldier River Cutoff (hence the name). The geography in this area is diverse and challenging. We’re estimating the elevation on this race will be over 4,000 ft. But, like we said, it will be worth it. Every climb opens up to another vista and every descent lets you discover a new and less travelled area.
Pisgah’s City Park has great facilities, including camping and showers.
