New Date: TBD
Mt. Airy Ridge Run has been postponed until further notice.
At everything is changing, we will update as we know more.
Mt. Airy Ridge Run is a perennial favorite. This is the largest park in the city and features extensive trails.
Mt. Airy Forest is, in fact, is one of the larger parks located within a city's limits in the country. Even Central Park can only boast 843 acres, while Mt. Airy holds a massive 1,469.9 acres. The Mt. Airy Forest Ridge Run is aptly named, as the runners will get a wilderness experience that mirrors the Sierras at times. The course winds through all of the features Mt. Airy has to offer, such as its lush evergreens, dense hardwoods, open meadows, flowing rivers, and of course, hill climbs and ridge traverses.
The Mt. Airy Forest Ridge Run will have TWO separate races over different distances. There will be a two lap race (10.6) miles that will begin at 9:00 a.m. There will also be a one lap race (5.4 miles) that will start at 9:15 a.m.
This is the third leg of the 2020 Dirt Days Trail Series. Each event will be scored separately and both events will count toward the Series points.
Mt. Airy Ridge Run Update: We have added a "Trekker" category for those who would like to do the 10+ mile course but need extra time to finish. If you think that you need more than 2-2.5 hours to finish, we encourage you to consider the this option. You can start at 8:00 or after instead of nine. You will receive a time and credit for participation. Also, you can finish before all the food is gone!

Once again, this year's race will be chip timed with Ipico shoe tags. All Times will be read electronically. You do not have to have a tag to participate but you must have a tag to receive a time. To receive a time, you must properly attach shoe tag to your shoe. No tag, no time! Shoe tags will be distributed on race-day only. Tags are re-useable and will be collected at the finish line. If you are given a tag, you must agree to return it for reuse. Check out the video to see how to properly attach your timing chip.
