Gralloch /ɡralək/ [noun] a deer’s entrails [verb] to disembowel a deer
ORIGIN: gaelic grealach

The gravel trails of the Gralloch might crisscross one of Scotland’s most beautiful and undiscovered gems, but we designed it as race so you might not get the time to take it all in!

The idea came after one of our other events, Raiders Gravel. Held in the same Galloway and Southern Ayrshire town as The Gralloch, Gatehouse of Fleet, Raiders is aimed at anyone, racers and more recreational riders, but we realised the Dumfries and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere is the perfect place for a full-on race.

Talking to riders at both Raiders and King’s Cup, another of our gravel events, we knew there was demand for a UCI Gravel World Series race. It’s not just us though, without the people of Gatehouse of Fleet and our numerous partners The Gralloch couldn’t happen.

You’ll be racing for the chance to qualify for your age group at the UCI Gravel World Championships in Italy next autumn, so it could be a hard day out, but we promise not to Gralloch you!
