JOIN US FOR AN ALL-NEW TRAIL RACE ON JUNE 22, 2024!
This is a cupless race!
Run an AWESOME loop course all in the lower Susan River Canyon!
For the Dirty Devil's 22K, runners start on the Bizz Johnson Trail at the Hobo Camp Bridge and take the "outbound" portion of the Bizz Johnson Trail all the way to Devil's Corral. From Devil's Corral, runners turn and drop down to the Susan River, crossing over a seasonal foot bridge, and enter the stunningly beautiful Southside trail with its rockslides, vista points, and flowy single track all the way back to Hobo Camp.
The Tunnel's Blast 14K starts on the Bizz Johnson Trail at the Hobo Camp Bridge and takes the "outbound" portion of the Bizz Johnson Trail to the entrance to the first railroad tunnel. Before heading into the darkness of the tunnel, runners will veer off onto singletrack, where they climb over the top of the tunnel to reach the Southside Trail. From there, they will enjoy the stunningly beautiful Southside trail with its rockslides, vista points, and flowy single track all the way back to Hobo Camp
The "Hobo's Special" 7K starts on the Bizz Johnson Trail at the Hobo Camp bridge and heads up to the Twin Bridges Access connector to the Southside Trail. You'll get just enough of the Bizz Johnson's steady climb to excite your senses for the fast, flowy Southside's single-track return. Once you get to the finish, enjoy a cold beverage, snacks, and a cool dip in the Susan River! If you want more excitement, bring a picnic lunch as you chill and watch the finish. Charcoal BBQ's are also available for use at the finish line.
