SORBA-Woodstock's Dirty Duathlon

ImageJoin SORBA-Woodstock on March 22, 2008 for the first ever Blankets Creek
Dirty Duathlon! All proceeds for this event will go towards trail
construction costs of the new North Loop Trail at Blankets Creek. Please
show your support and come get dirty at the Dirty Duathlon!

The race will consist of a 5 mile trail run, followed by a 12 mile
mountain bike loop. The course follows rolling singletrack near Lake
Allatoona and is forgiving enough to be completed by a first timer, but
will also be challenging to experienced racers. Individuals will race
the entire course, while the two person relay teams will have one person
run and the other will bike.
