Dirty Dozen

Hi all, I hope the last days of August are treating you well. We are about to embark on the event frenzied month of September so eat a big breakfast and get ready to race. There is at least one event in Central Oregon on every weekend of September. That is why I decided to move the Dirty Dozen to the relatively slow month of October. Hopefully this will mean a course that is a little more packed and a nice cool day to tackle this hills of Wanoga snow park.
For those who have never done or heard of the Dirty Dozen here is a brief description. This year there will be three choices for you to race. The 6 mile Half Dozen, 12 mile Dozen and a two person relay. The course is two mostly different loops so those who opt for the full dozen will be treated to some different terrain. The last mile of the dozen is the same as the last mile of the half dozen. As for the terrain the course is wide double track with some pretty challenging climbs. The longest climb is from mile 6-8 on the full dozen course. The rest are relatively short but steep climbs. Some great views are available from the course so keep your eyes open while your racing to take in some great shots of Mt. Bachelor.
So come out and and get dirty in October and have some fun. Entries can are available at the Footzone and can be dropped of there as well.

Hope to see you out there,
