Packet pickup will be the morning of the race starting at 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Race starts at 7:30 a.m. SHARP! Both distances 13.1/3.5 miles will start at 7:30 a.m. SHARP!
Course will start on the asphalt paved trail for 1/4 mile then turn left onto the dirt trail. The 13.1/3.5 milers will stay together until mile 2.2 (at that point the 13.1 mile runners will go right and the 3.5 mile runners will go left). The two courses will come back together at 3.35 miles and stay together until 3.7 miles. The course will split again at 3.7 miles and then come back together at 5.45 miles. After 5.45 miles go about 50 yards and stay straight (veer slightly right). At 9.25 miles turn right. At 9.75 miles turn left. At 9.85 miles turn hard right onto the mountain bike trails (2 way traffic / water station). Go about 20 yards and turn right (staying on the mountain bike trails. At 10.15 miles stay right. At 11.10 miles turn hard left (off the single track mountain bike trails) onto the fire road. At 11.25 miles merge back onto the mountain bike trail and stay left (onto the single track). At 11.85 miles turn hard right. At 12.65 miles turn hard right (2 way traffic / water station). At 12.7 soft right (you can go hard right, soft right or straight... course will go soft right). At 12.9 miles hard left onto the asphalt... Course will finish at 13.2 Miles!
We will have water for the 13.1 mile runners at 6.6, 10.0 and 12.65 (if you need anything before that we are asking you to be self supportive). The first 9 miles is double track – about 4–5 feet wide and a very smooth running surface – minimal roots and rocks), after 9 miles we will tap into the sweet single track trails! This course will be run in a counter clockwise direction (we will start behind the restrooms next to the parking lot and finish at the covered pavilion). If you have ever debated about trying a trail race half this one is a great starter! Course running surface is very smooth and easy to navigate... 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 top 3 female finishers for each race as well as overall male and female masters winners. 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.
