Robinette’s, Provin, & Kuyper College Trails
3 dirty trail systems. 2 dueling courses. 1 tough decision.
A Trail Runner Magazine “Top 15 fall race under 15 miles.”
The Dirty Duel is the only trail race in the U.S. that offers you a choice of courses:
Short & Brutal (3.1-3.3 miles) or Long & Difficult (3.5-3.8 miles)
Registration for the 2017 race is now open.
Racers will split off right after the start in a mad dueling dash back to the finish. Will it be the nasty Short & Brutal course with steel hill climbs and descents and off-trail scrambling that runners survive for a top finish or the trail course that extends almost a half mile longer to make up for the speed (albeit on some tough trails). Either way, both courses will finish through the maize (maze), bushwhacking through corn and following the maze trail where it helps before crashing through to the finish. Celebrate after the tough run with free homemade cider and donuts from Robinette’s and thousands of dollars in top finisher awards, raffle prizes and swag from our sponsors including Merrell, Gazelle Sports and Founders Brewing.
