Battle at Big Creek (Dirty Spokes Xterra Trail Run Series)

NOTE: Big Creek Trails are closed for this event.

We welcome volunteers to assist with this trail race.

Dirty Spokes is proud to support our local trail maintenance groups! We will be donating a percentage of the race proceeds back to the Roswell Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization (RAMBO) for setting up the course at Big Creek! We greatly appreciate the time and energy they put into building and maintaining these trails! Please support your local trail maintenance group!

PACKET PICKUP

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!

RACE COURSE

This is a great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start on the Greenway Concrete Trail (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, roots, rocks (did we say rocks) along with some technical sections (tight and twisty). We will have water at mile 3.3, 3.8, 5.2, 8.0, 8.5.  The 5.5 milers will turn hard left after 1 lap (at 5.2 miles), the 10.3 milers will continue straight at that point (crossing over the wooden bridge at the sewer cap and do the same dirt trail loop again).  When the 10 milers get back to the sewer cap (2nd time) they will turn hard left (at 10.1 miles).  The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´.
