ABOUT THE COURSE | Sturdy Dirty racers should, at minimum, have intermediate skill and fitness levels to be comfortable with the trails on course. Our Enduro 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.
Getting to the race: We're staging at Tiger Summit Trailhead (east Tiger Mountain State Forest).
Discover Pass: You'll need a Discover Pass to park in the lots at Tiger Mountain.
Parking: Parking is available on-site, but is not abundant. Please carpool to ensure enough space. We will have people to help direct parking. Please follow their directions and park conscientiously to ensure cars and emergency vehicles can get through.
Racer Packet Pick-up: Pick up your packet the morning of the race, starting at 7:30am. The packet will have your number plate and timing chip. Please make sure to keep track of your timing chip! It is a $100 fee if the timing chip is lost.
Race Day Registration: We are completely SOLD OUT. In addition, we decided to increase the cap and were able to let in EVERYONE who was left on the waitlist which puts us at just under 300 racers!! If you have a friend that wants to race but didn’t sign up they can try their luck. Just check in with us at registration and we’ll put you on a stand-by list for no-shows.
Category and other registration changes: You can make changes to your registration (category change, Team name, typo, etc.) online by logging into your account (https://sturdydirty.account.webconnex.com/login/). Deadline for online changes is Wednesday 7/13 11:59pm PST. We will allow category changes on race day when you pick up your racer packet, but we appreciate it if y’all make the decision by Wednesday.
What to expect On-Course:
You will ride a combination of road and single track between stages, with all stages raced on single-track only.
At each stage, you will line up for your turn - expect a line. Its good to bring a coat to stay comfortable while waiting.
We also attempt to group racers by category for each stage, however, we expect that racers from different categories will start to mix more on later race stages. Be prepared for passing; be patient and courteous as both a passer and a passee.
We have fabulous aid stations! However, they may be serving up food and drinks that may not work well for you. They will have water available for topping off bottles, but plan to be self-sufficient so you can be well-prepared for the day.
We have amazing volunteers! It is how we are able to put on this race. Thank them often.
Sturdy Dirty Do's

Enjoy a free meal and beverages (non-racer friends & family can purchase a lunch).

Please leave your dog at home - we love dogs, but there are lots of people and not much space. It’s a good recipe for disaster.
