ToughSkin150 – A tough-as-nails 50/50 blend of the finest road and the finest gravel in the Southeast. Are you ready for a little bit of everything on a course that climbs 10,000+ feet? We’ve got 35 gravel segments featuring stream crossings, dirt, gravel, and some sand, with buttery smooth tarmac in between. The Toughskin150 is guaranteed to push you to—and maybe beyond—your limits. With its limited SAG support, soul-crushing time cuts, and field limits guaranteed to give you plenty of alone time, we fully admit that this adventure is not for everyone. We made it that way on purpose. To finish is an accomplishment. To win secures your claim as the best in the South…and scores you one hell of a belt.
*Route and distance are an approximation and subject to change as the event nears.
We want our Gran Fondo participants to ride the ride the way they want to ride. Fast, slow, medium-fast, lightspeed—we’re here for all of it. If you’re the type to take your time, stop and smell the gravel, and really experience the route’s stunning natural scenery, be our guest. All participants who complete this punishing course will receive the satisfaction of a tough job well done and an exclusive Spin the District embroidered patch. (Good luck finding either one on eBay.) If you want to skip the scenery and go for the gold, we’ll cheer you on. The top three ToughSkin150 riders from each category will receive the patch, an event medal, and free registration for next year’s event. In addition, the first-place finisher regardless of category for both men and women will also receive a year of fame on our website and social media, and this giant, badass belt. (It won’t fit through your belt loops, but your pants will stay up from sheer intimidation.)
Calling out the best of the best
Have you had good results this year past year? Come check out the ToughSkin150 or the Husky100—on us. If you’ve placed in the top 5 of any gravel race, grinder, or Gran Fondo that’s 50 miles or more this year, we’re offering you free registration into your choice of our two toughest rides. This ain’t our first rodeo, but it is our first time wrangling these particular bulls with these particular clowns. (We’re so much better at planning rides than metaphors.) Bottom line, we understand if a seasoned rider like yourself has a few reservations about our new routes. That’s why we’ve decided to minimize your risk by eliminating the entry fee for top racers. Come on, take us up on it—what have you got to lose? Not a top 5 finisher? Don’t worry if you don’t qualify for free registration this year. Put the pedal to the metal in this year’s Toughskin150 to compete for free registration in 2020.
