Rode to Hell 2023

Aug 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

60 Rode to Hell 2023

Unleash the Adventure: October 7, 2023
Location: Waterloo State Recreation Area, 16345 McClure Rd, Chelsea, MI 48118, USA

Prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey as you embrace the enigmatic landscape of Rode to Hell’s “Purgatory Loops.” Set against the backdrop of Michigan’s rugged beauty, this event is not just a race; it’s an experience that pushes boundaries and transcends limits.

The starting point and destination in Grass Lake, MI, offer a launching pad for both shorter and longer routes, with each loop promising a unique encounter with the elements. Those opting for the two shorter distances will journey east and north before looping back to Grass Lake, skirting the edges of Hell but never quite venturing in.

For the intrepid spirits ready to conquer the full journey to Hell, the two longer distances will propel you east and north, all the way to Hell, MI, before gracefully looping back to Grass Lake. This is the true essence of the challenge – a symbolic journey that truly lives up to its name.
