Dirty Duo race, something Different!

This race is a bit different: All athletes start 150 meters from the start line (LeMans start) and run to their bike; AND there are no age or gender groups, pretty cool!

Lory State Park, just west of Fort Collins, boasts some of the best trails, views and surroundings for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes. The “Dirty Duo” Off Road Ride & Run puts athletes right in the center of those surroundings for an all out multisport race!

Athletes start 150 meters from the transition area in what’s called a LeMans start. When the horn goes off they’ll sprint to their bikes and take off! Racers can go as easy or hard as they’d like in this first section to attack for position.

Once on the bikes this unique 11.25 mile two loop course will challenge their legs and keep them inspired as they climb to see epic views of Horsetooth Reservoir. There are two loops down Lodgepole Rd which is flat, open and fast. This gives faster riders a chance to pass other athletes before getting back onto the tight & technical single track trails.

As riders blaze into transition they’ll start to climb again almost immediately once they leave on the 4 mile run. The run course is technical, twisty and offers great scenery just like the bike course.

This race has NO age groups, NO gender groups and a small athlete capacity of just 100 racers. The course promises soaring skies and some awesome trail terrain that will leave smiling and dirty by the end.

We created an event like this to connect athletes with a “grassroots” type of race experience. There’s no formal sanctioning, no formal age/gender rankings and it’s essentially you vs you on the mountain trails.

Fort Collins is a short 10 minute drive east. The area boasts some of the best local breweries around, bike friendly paths at every turn and a ton of activities all within minutes of iconic downtown – also known as “Old Town”. Don’t take our word for it – make a weekend out of this event and plan to get a little extra sight seeing done after your cleaned up from the mountain 🙂
