Down & Dirty 5 Mile

Fri, August 19, 2022
Oak Hill, CVNP

Part of the Dirty Trail Series

The happiest Happy Hours take place on the trails! Gather your friends and meet for a Friday evening five miler and an Athletic Brewing Company beverage. Down & Dirty will take place on the trails at Oak Hill, a local favorite for its diversity of terrain. The course begins with a fast descent into the valley, followed by a long uphill climb, then meanders over and around twisting rooted trails to the finish.

2022 Down & Dirty Featured Athletes

Michaela Schoeffler: I grew up in Northeast Ohio hiking the trails every weekend with family and friends. How convenient that this race includes my personal favorites: Sylvan Pond (great bird watching) and the Plateau Trail (memories of so much race training done here). Stoked to be back and running this trail – I’ll be coming all the way from Maine AND bringing friends along to introduce them to CVNP and an awesome race! Wouldn’t miss it!

Bob Smith: My first trail race was Leave No Trace in 2014, and I totally fell in love! Fast forward to now… I look back and think of all the wonderful people I have met and become friends with, and Leave No Trace is still my favorite race. I’m looking forward to Down & Dirty. Oak Hill is a great place to run, like all the Dirty Trail Series races are. Trail running is a special niche, surrounded by beauty of the woods with much support from the other runners – It’s definitely a social thing!!
