Dirty Spokes Trail Run Series Presented By Automation Direct
We are excited to bring you the Dirty Spokes Trail Running Series 2017 (these races are not part of the XTERRA Georgia, XTERRA Alabama or Georgia State Parks Trail Race Series)! The 8 race series will begin in January and go through July! We will be offering "Dri-Fit Technical" shirts at each of our trail running races this year! That´s right a $25.00 value with your race registration! No guarantee of a t-shirt with late or race day registration.
If you register for the entire series (long or short distance) we are offering 1 of 2 choices (as a way to thank you for choosing to be part of what we are doing)! Option 1. You will receive one of our Dirty Spokes Sweatshirts / Hoodies (Colors to choose from: Blue, Black, Grey, Purple, Orange, Pink, Green)! Option 2. You can take $5.00 off per race from your total fees (8 races). This is a mail in only offer as we are not set up on-line for the series discount. If you are interested in the series discount you will need to go to our site, print a waiver form, fill it out, mail it in and write at the top "SERIES DISCOUNT" and we will make sure it gets processed (please indicate on the waiver form the sweatshirt size and color you want and we will have it ready for you at the first race of the series OR just subtract $5.00 off per race and submit payment)!

Here´s the skinny… we are using a "point system" to reward and separate the top finishers from the pack - the point system is similar to a NASCAR points system or possibly other "points series races" around the way in trail running, mountain biking or other similar athletic events. The Dirty Spokes Trail Running points series will be tracked ⁄ recorded by our staff throughout the 2017 calendar - starting with the Dirty Spokes Trail Race At Sawnee Mountain (New Trails on Bettis Tribble Gap Road) and finishing with the Dirty Spokes Trail Running Race at Sawnee Mountain (Spot Road Side of the Park). In order to qualify for the Championship you must enter 6 of the 8 events. If there is a tie at the end of the series in any category we will determine winner by fastest overall time (Dirty Spokes Trail Run - Sawnee Mountain course) - if there is still a tie we will determine winner by rock, paper, scissors! Your race age will be as of July 31, 2017 (last month of the series - that will keep you consistent for the entire series in the same age category). Sawnee Mtn will also serve as points for both categories combined (long and short distance). For any of the Dirty Spokes Trail Running Races where there are two distances in one day (Example: 3.1 ⁄ 6.2 Mile) you may enter either of the two distances to qualify for the Dirty Spokes Trail Running Series Points! We will be awarding "Series Winners" in both our long and short distance races this year (please note series points will not be switched from long to short or short to long distances).
We are pleased to offer the following categories: 14&U, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75&U.
WE WANT TO REWARD YOU!
After the 7th race of the series (Dirty Spokes Haw Creek Park Trail Run) if you are top 5 in total series points in your category and have raced in 7 of the 7 races to date we will comp your entry to the series finale (how cool is that)! In order to receive ⁄ take us up on this you must mail a registration form in and write "COMP TOP 5" at the top (we will confirm with our records and process your registration). If you register on race day you will not receive this offer.
