The 2014 Dirty Duathlon Solo & Tag-Team off-road duathlon and Dirty Bit Trail Run kick off at Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, New York once again this year promising another wild day of racing action on resort trails. Taking place on Labor Day weekend this year we are excited to plan for a rock-solid course vs. the traditional springtime race. A 4.2 mile lap-style course featuring challenging climbs, single track, rock gardens and white-knuckle descents promise one of the most demanding and fun days of competition of the season. The Dirty Du & Dirty Bit are trail and mountain bike races exclusively. There are no gimmicks, man-made features or obstacles-just Mother Earth's trails that will pull every ounce of energy and stamina from today's athlete. Labor-Day weekend this year is filled with nothing but action as athletes compete for awards and prizes in one of the most hard-core events in Western New York in a demanding landscape of beautiful off-road East-Coast style single trail and mountain trails. This Dirty weekend takes places at the Holiday Valley Mountain Sports Center off Holiday Valley Road. Race-day registration and # pickup takes place from 8:00am at the Holiday Valley Mountian sports Center. T-shirts to the first 250 entrants and as they last on race-day.
