Description:

This is a great single and double track off-road running experience. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ‘ditch the city’. Nestled in the woods and along the picturesque banks of Lake Hartwell lies a true gem. Well groomed system of trails with gentle slopes and beautiful scenery will leave you breathless (if that doesn’t, the 9.65/3.2 miles 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’.

9.65 Milers: We’ll run this course in a counter clockwise direction. Starting on the asphalt paved parking lot (near the start / finish) for about .25… GPS unit measures course at 8.91 miles; Calibrated Bicycle Computer “wheel” measures course at 9.65 miles. Please note GPS Units do not capture every twist and turn in the woods as bicycle wheel does roll every twist and turn. Race will start on the asphalt road (Paynes Creek Mountain Bike Parking Lot). We will immediately tap into the Sweet Single Track Trail (Long Course will be Headed Right with the Counter Clockwise Tues, Thurs, Sat Direction). Stay on this trail all the way back to the Start / Finish Area! The trail running surface is very easy to navigate… it consists of both single and double track with some elevation change and some technical sections (roots and rocks). The race will be run in a “counter clockwise direction”. Complete Info: www.dirtyspokes.com
