Dirty Spokes Haw Creek Park

Description: This is a great single- and double-track off-road running experience.

The race will start in the parking lot (required for spacing) but will lead into the woods. The race will be run in a “clockwise direction.” The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, rocks with some technical sections - tight and twisty but mostly super flowy. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner.
