The race will start behind the Red Top Mountain State Park Lodge Parking Lot in the open field (required for spacing) and will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, double track, minimal roots and rocks (running surface is very forgiving). The race will utilize the Sweet Gum Trail, Homestead Trail, Campground Trail, Iron Hill Trail and Visitor Center Loop Trail. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. This course sets up well for anyone interested in trail running but has never experienced one.
Dirty Spokes will be handing out medals and prizes to the overall top 3 male and female finishers for each race. They will also be handing out medals to our top 3 male and female finishers in each age group (14 & Under, 15–19, 20–24, 25–29, 30–34, 35–39, 40–44, 45–49, 50–54, 55–59, 60–64, 65–69, 70 & Over) – you must be present to receive your medal.
Awards will be given out when there are 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 9.9 ⁄ 3.1 miles at a 16 minute mile pace or under to receive an official time.
