Great Divide Race

The Great Divide Race is a self-supported, solo competition following the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. Traversing Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, the route demands over 200,000 feet of climbing along its length. Competitors carry all equipment necessary to negotiate the backcountry, restocking on food and other supplies from the small towns along the route.

The intent of the GDR is to establish a common date and set of rules so that those wishing to challenge the route or record may compete directly with other athletes under equal circumstances.

The GDR follows Adventure Cycling Association's Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. The GDR provides a common set of rules, a suggested start date and a listing of results. That is all.

Your travel arrangements and most importantly your safety are up to you. Approach the GDR as though you are on an independent adventure and have your own emergency plan in place.
