Course Description Join the Driftless Dirt crew for 4mi, 7mi and half marathon distances on some of eastern Iowa’s best and most challenging trails.

In keeping with the beauty of the natural environment the races will be as environmentally-friendly and sustainable as possible with local foods, cup free racing and guaranteed swag for all pre-registered entrants.
