June 9: Gold Rush Gravel Grinder
It’s race time! Saturday of the summer kick off is the Gold Rush Gravel Grinder! With three different races jam-packed into one event, this race truly is a grind. Will you take on the 70-mile Gold Dust; the 100-mile Gold Rush; or perhaps endure the monstrous 210-mile Motherlode. All three races begin at the Spearfish City Park and the race is throughout the Black Hills.
June 8-10: Citywide Rummage Sales
Who doesn’t love a rummage sale? During the summer kickoff weekend, the city-wide rummage sale is going on. Make sure to grab a copy of the Black Hills Pioneer, as they are printing a map with rummage sale locations for your bargain hunting. The Black Hills Pioneer will run the map on Wednesday, June 6 and Friday, June 8. It will also run in the Weekly Prospector on Tuesday, June 5. They go fast so make sure you get your paper early!
Along with the events surrounded by the kick off weekend, there are always food and drink specials and various restaurants around town and of course there is hiking, biking, fishing and off-roading. So, what are you waiting for, come join us for the Summer Kick Off in Spearfish!
