Are you up for the Dirty Dog Challenge?


The 6th Annual Dirty Dog Trail 4 Miler will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 9:00am at Veteran’s Park.  We are pleased to have Lexington Clinic Veterans Park as our presenting sponsor.

The 4 mile course will traverse portions of the park, trails and some pathways along/around the scenic East Hickman River. The race will be chip timed and awards will be presented for top 3 M/F Overall and top 3 in each of 11 age groups.  Commemorative T-shirts will be provided to all registrants.  Runners & walkers of all experience levels are welcomed.

We also have our Top Dogs Team Competition for 2-Person male, female and co-ed teams.  Grab and friend and run together!  Your two times will be scored together and compared to other teams in your division.  Winners for all 3 divisions (2-Person Male, 2-Person Female, 2-Person Co-ed) each receive free race registrations to a future RaceRise race of comparable value.   Runners on a team will also be eligible for overall and age group individual awards.

We’ve added a Virtual Runner/Walker opportunity for the Dirty Dog.  If you live out of the area or will be out of town during our race you can still participate and make a donation to the Hickman Creek Conservancy.  Register as a virtual for $30 and we’ll mail you your commemorative race shirt.  You can then run/walk/hike your own “Dirty Dog” on your own schedule in your own hometown (optional of course).

PACKET PICKUP:   We will offer a packet pickup on Friday, 11/6/20 from 4-6pm at Lexington Clinic Veterans Park (630 Southpointe Drive, Lexington, KY 40511).  You may also pickup your packet on race morning at Veterans Park/Shelter 1 from 7:30-9am.

The course will be officially measured and marked for your safety and direction.  The course will have some open grassy areas, cross at least one dry rocky creek as well as hard packed dirt trail areas.  There will be at least 2 and likely 3 hydration stops along the course where water and SWORD Hydration will be served.

RACE BENEFICIARY   Our 2020 race beneficiary is the Hickman Creek Conservancy who works to keep our watershed clean and green.  Read more below and consider a donation to help them achieve their mission.

RACE PRICING:   $20 through 3/30/20, $25 from 4/1/20-6/30/20, $30 from 7/1/20-9/31/20, $35 from 10/1/20-11/6/20, $40 on race day

RACE SHIRTS  We will be ordering our race shirts on October 26th.  While we will likely order extras, to guarantee your shirt size you should register by this date.  When you register it will only give you the shirt size options that are available.  If you size is not available you can select “No Shirt Option” and donate or save $ or pick another size and try to swap it out after the race if we end up with a shirt in your preferred size (i.e. No shows).
