Runners experience dirt/gravel access roads, rock gardens, technical single track and fun downhill sections that demand sure-footedness and 100% attention. Zero pavement. Water station at the the top of the first climb keeps runners hydrated. Technical trail running with elevation of over 630' for the run lap. Enjoy your training!-You'll thank yourself! 10am start.
Dirty Duathlon-Solo or Two-Person tag teams compete in a Run/Mountain Bike race format around the same course. The Race also starts at 10:00am with the 4-Mile run followed by two similar laps of mountain bike action. The Dirty Bit Trail runners start with the Duathon participants since they use the same course. A centralized start/finish area at the Mountain Sports Center clocks athletes' Run and Bike lap times. Several classes and divisions promise a wide array of awards options as soloists and teams compete in a bare-bones, white knuckle, hard core 100% off-road Duathlon. Helmets mandatory while on mountain bikes. Centralized transition area/team tag zone for bike transition just beyond the start/finish line. Cyclocross bikes have not been successful due to highly technical trail sections on the Dirty Duathlon course.
