Double Dirty Dozen Trail Run – 24 The Hard Way Road Run – 2010 results

Dirt – Pavement – 24 hour – 12 hour – 6 hour – Plenty of loopy fun – Rumor had it, a bit of wind as well

Last weekend a unique, short loop timed event took place at Bluff Creek Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. You could enjoy a 24/12/6 hour running journey on a paved park trail or a single-track dirt trail through the park woods. Depending on the surface of choice, you either participated in the 24 The Hard Way (pavement) or Double Dirty Dozen (dirt).

For those that may be unfamiliar with this format – run, walk, crawl as much as you want for 24, 12, or 6 hours. There is no distance you have to cover in order to finish. Aid, support, a chair, is always typically within a mile or two. For those racing, most laps wins.

Over 115 runners enjoyed this loopy running adventure.

Special thanks to 24 The Hard WayDouble Dirty Dozen for the various random pics from the event.

Course

The park pavement runners enjoyed a smooth, clean, one-ish mile loop within the park that contains a few twists and turns while surrounded by nature on both sides of you. The pavement course is fairly flat but does includes a few tame rollers.

Video and map of the course

The dirt lovers scamper along 2-ish mile varied single track that contains the usual roots, rocks, and possibly a bit of mud (depending on conditions).  The first mile is more technical than the second. No monster climbs but some brief muscle smiling grade changes.

Race Reports

  • “At mile 14 I started having leg cramps so bad I had trouble walking, much less running.  Miles 14-16 I ran/walked with Melissa and tried to assess what my body was telling me.  Melissa told me they had vegetable soup at the aid station and I should try that.  Coming in from mile 16 I did just that and almost instantly the leg cramps disappeared and I was off running again.” by Julie @ Trailing Along
  • “My plan was to start out slow, and keep a steady pace for as long as I could (10-12 min./lap).  I did for about 30 miles.  For there, the wind took its toll on me.” by AB @ Keep moving forward
