Dirty Spokes is proud to support our local trail maintenance groups! We will be donating a percentage of the race proceeds back to the Roswell Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization (RAMBO) for setting up the course at Big Creek! We greatly appreciate the time and energy they put into building and maintaining these trails! Please support your local trail maintenance group!
Packet pickup will be the morning of the race starting at 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. Race starts at 8:30 a.m. SHARP!
This is a great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start on the Greenway Concrete Trail (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, roots, rocks (did we say rocks) along with some technical sections (tight and twisty). We will have water at mile 3.3, 3.8, 5.2, 8.0, 8.5. The 5.5 milers will turn hard left after 1 lap (at 5.2 miles), the 10.3 milers will continue straight at that point (crossing over the wooden bridge at the sewer cap and do the same dirt trail loop again). When the 10 milers get back to the sewer cap (2nd time) they will turn hard left (at 10.1 miles). The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´.
Dirty Spokes will be handing out medals and prizes to our overall top 3 male and female finishers for each race. We will also be handing out medals to our top 3 male and female finishers in each age group (14&U, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70&U) – you must be present to receive your medal we will not mail them to you.
Awards will be given out when we have enough finishers in to fill the categories. Medals will be given out to the top three finishers in each category. Walkers are encouraged to participate; however, you should be able to complete the 5.5 mile & 10.3 mile at a 16 minute mile pace or under to receive an official time.
