Silver Springs Park
4 Hour Trail Race

Part of the Dirty Trail Series – Hikers welcome!


Kick off your race year with the Dirty Snowflake 4 Hour Race. Run or hike as many 2 mile loops as you want, for as much time as you want, up to 4 hours! Your finish time will be based on your best 3 loops (6 miles). Start time is flexible, and you can rest between loops and the rest time doesn’t count against you! This is more than a race. Reps from Brooks, New Balance, OH, Saucony, Vertical Runner and NovaCare will be onsite with their best chili recipes and demo shoes. Athletic Brewing Company will provide beverages at the finish. Test some demo shoes, vote for the best chili, wash it down with a brew, and hang out with your trail friends at Stow’s Silver Springs Lodge!
