– What is Гревел Кинг?
It is a race along the most beautiful routes of the Leningradsky District combined with camping in a company of friends.
Three-day camping nearby the fire and gravel race are waiting for you. We’ve arranged a quite interesting 90 km long route. Road quality and complexity strongly depend on weather conditions as the main part of it is located deep in the forest. Anyway, you will face with sharp gravel, sand traps, fords, bits of good and poor asphalt and few kilometres of cobbled road.
– Where and when?
The race will take place on 16-18 June at Leningradsky District, nearby St. Petersburg. The exact race location will be announced one week before the start. For now, we can say that it is about 60-90 minutes by train from the city.
