This uniquely Scottish gravel adventure is accessed through premium, all-inclusive entry packages and offers an optimal mix of adventure, entertainment, culture and relaxation, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience in the South of Scotland. 

Team entry packages cover all aspects of the 4 day festival experience. The riders will be provided with a camping pitch (BYO tent) or a motorhome parking spot to set up a home-away-from-home, and they will enjoy daily breakfast, recovery lunch and dinner. In the evening, welcome drinks and endless entertainment await. Riders’ bikes will also be well taken care of, with MucOff bike washes and secure bike storage included in the entry packages.

The all-inclusive aspect of Raiders Gravel also guarantees professionally managed race routes, including GPS rider tracking. Special inaugural edition finisher medals and Bioracer leader jerseys for all race categories are also included, as well as goodie bags, sponsored merch and much more.

Entry prices start at £375 per person for early-birds (first 50 teams), with VIP packages available for those looking for a more luxurious experience.

"We’re stoked to bring this incredibly unique event to the stunning region around the Galloway Forest Park. As a gravel enthusiast myself, I was blown away by the wilderness and scenery here in Galloway. Paired with some of the best gravel tracks in the UK, riders are in for an unforgettable time in the South of Scotland. We’re also particularly excited by the world-class headline partner line-up of Canyon, POC Sports, MucOff, HIGH5 and Bioracer as well as funding support from the South of Scotland Destination Alliance (SSDA), South of Scotland Enterprise (SOSE) and the Dumfries & Galloway council, all of whom are playing a vital role in creating one of the world’s leading gravel events.”
