I’ve been running in the Dirty Spokes Productions trail races for the past two years and they are some of the best trail races I have ever run. They always offer distances that any type of runner can participate in, have a competitive field of avid trail runners, and are well run trail running races. The Georgia State Championship Trail Running Race is coming soon so start training.

Once you have started the race you may not change categories (distances).
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 8.5 mile race course has a little bit of everything! This is one of the toughest trail running courses we have put together! The race will start in an open field and quickly narrow down to a double track trail… the first .9 of a mile is back and forth uphill (double track) once you get to the top of the hill you will cross a gravel road and quickly start back down (still double track). Then you start to hit the single track sections and once you get there you will find this course / terrain is made up of a little bit of everything! The terrain is rolling hills, steep hills, single track, double track, granite rock outcroppings along with technical sections (tight and twisty along with rocks and roots) along with two shallow creek crossings. We are calling it the Georgia State Championship Trail Running Race for a reason (bring your “A Game”)! We will have the GPS Data listed on our site as soon as it is finalized…
So check it out, maybe win some money and run with the elite trail runners of Georgia!
