This is great off–road running experience. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. Nestled in the woods of Northeast Ga lies a true gem. The well groomed system of trails and beautiful scenery will leave you breathless (if that doesn´t, the 6.2 or 3.1 will). Once you descend into the woods, you will forget you´re in the city. As a matter of fact, you will come to know why we follow the creed ´Ditch the City´. Both distances will start on the "Fence Road" side of the park (behind the covered pavillion and next to the restrooms). The race will start out heading clockwise around the "West Meadow Trail" (up the asphalt trail about .2) to the entrance for the "Ravine Loop Trail", turn left onto the Ravine Loop Trail (it´s firm and fast; hard packed crush and run surface), staying to the right on the Ravine Loop Trail (going past the Ravine Overlook) you will come to the "Beech Tree Trail", turn right onto Beech Tree Trail for about 1 mile (heading back up to the asphalt trail), once you get to the asphalt trail turn left following around the outside of the West Meadow Trail (clockwise), stay on the West Meadow Trail for .4, crossing over to the East Meadow Trail through the pines and off road (grass running surface ⁄ true cross country trail). Staying to the right (using the Cross Country Trail), in a counter clockwise direction. When you get to mile 2.3 on the Cross Country Trail the 10K Runners will go hard right onto the East Mulberry Trail (East Mulberry Trail is a hiking ⁄ horseback trail ⁄ 4–6 feet wide easy to navigate ⁄ minimal rocks and roots ⁄ true dirt). The 5K Runners will stay on the East Meadow Trail ⁄ Cross Country Trail back over to the West Meadow Trail ⁄ Cross Country Trail... 10K Runners continue on the East Mulberry Trail (counter clockwise direction) when you get to the bottom of the East Mulberry Trail you will intersect with the Carriage Trail. On the Carriage Trail you will turn hard left onto the asphalt (about 20 yards), cross over a wooden bridge go 5 yards then hard right back onto the East Mulberry Trail (dirt trail), staying in a counter clockwise direction all the way back around you will cross the Carriage Trail headed back up towards the East Meadow Trail... once you get back to the East Meadow Trail you will turn hard right back onto the Cross Country Trail crossing over to the West Meadow Trail and towards the finish line!
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 6.2 or 3.1 miles at a 16 minute mile pace or under to receive an official time.
