We’re excited to announce Markagram Edition VII, the first USA-based running of the “most sinister gravel event in the world.” Markagram is coming this fall to the deep and dark forests of Vermont. Learn more about the event and how to register here. Prepare for darkness…
To some, a challenge of epic proportions has an irresistible appeal. Enter the Markagram. For the first time ever, “The Most Sinister Gravel Event in the World” is coming to the United States! Held exclusively in Norway each year, the seventh edition of Markagram kicks off this year at dusk on October 14th in Poultney, Vermont. Our friends at Search and State will host our Norwegian counterparts in conjunction with BIKEPACKING.com, NYC Velo, Candy Mountain Cyclery, and Rouleur Oslo. Read on for details.
The rules of the Markagram are simple: Depart at sunset. Finish by sunrise! Should you manage to complete the roughly 150-mile course—designed by our own Joe Cruz—by dawn, you’ll have accomplished what only one other rider in Markagram history has ever achieved. The course is made up of five checkpoints that form a pentagram. They will keep you honest, but they will not help you.
