Time to Get Dirty!

The Dirty Trail Series is a new trail running series I’m directing with Vince Rucci and Jim Christ. The series includes 16 events ranging from 5K to a Half Marathon (13.1 miles/21K) across Northeast Ohio, including races in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Cleveland Metroparks, Metroparks serving Summit County and Lake Metroparks as well as some private lands. The first race, the 4 mile Dirty Snowflake Prediction Run was held on January 28. The next race, Dirty Love, is this Sunday at the River Grove Picnic Area in the North Chagrin Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks. Check it out and Do the Dirty!
