Race: The 15th annual Dirty Dog Trail Run is for runners of all skill levels to run with or without their dogs. The course is a combination of unpaved two-track and single track trails that twist and turn over flat land and hills in the scenic woods of Midland City Forest. City Forest is a 520 acre preserve of woods, creeks, marshes, and bridges, making for an enjoyable and challenging off-road run.

Not interested in running on hills and single track trails? Join the 1 mile walk over a flat, unpaved course through the woods.

Shirts are not guaranteed for late and same day registrations. Shirts are men’s sizes. Youth shirts are available as well. Sign up for the race at www.itsyourrace.com
