Choose your path at the Dirty Duel

Dirty Duel race runners

The Dirty Duel “may be the toughest 5k you’ll ever do.”

The trail race will be on Nov. 9 at 9 a.m. at Robinette’s Apple Haus & Winery in Plainfield Township and cover the trails at Robinette’s and the Provin Trails.

Runners will choose between two trails: the Short & Brutal course or the Long & Difficult course.

The Short & Brutal course is 2.9-3.2 miles with hill climbs and descents, a sand dune and off-trail scrambling.

The Long & Difficult course is 3.3-3.6 miles. It is “all on trail” and with no sand.

Runners will finish with a “crash course” by negotiating the corn maze.

After crossing the finish line, runners will be offered free homemade cider and either doughnuts or hot applesauce from Robinette’s.

There will also be thousands of dollars in top finisher awards, raffle prizes and swag.

You can register for the race online.
