Sturdy Dirty racers should have, at minimum, intermediate skill and fitness levels to be comfortable with the trails on course. Our Lite, Beginner and Sport race segments will mostly be on blue downhill trails that tend to be winding, with roots and rocks and some rollable jumps and drops. You will want to be able to stay on your bike for the majority of the trail, though walking a small number of features is an option. We recommend trying out the trails at Raging River and seeing how Poppin Tops and middle/lower PT feel, or head over to the lower sections of CCDH.
The following are ESTIMATES to give you an idea of what to expect and help you decide which category to pick. Not sure which is right for you? Don’t worry! You’ll be able to easily change your category even up to race day.
What to expect:
The best damn race weekend of your life. Expect timed downhill-orientated sections interspersed with uphill transition trail riding and fun-filled aid stations.
We will provide course map and details about 1 month prior to the event.
HOW TO GEt there:
From Seattle take I-90 East to EXIT 27. Take a right off the exit and head up the hill until you hit the parking lot for the trail head.
Parking and staging info coming soon.
WHERE TO STAY:
There is no camping or lodging onsite at Raging River. Check Issaquah, North Bend, or Snoqualamie for hotels, airbnbs, etc. for closest lodging.
