The infamous Stairway to Heaven Trail Half Marathon and 15K is the third event in both Dirt Devil Racing Series. You can run all 4 Trail Half marathons earning a race logo pint glass for each race.....run all 4 and you earn the coveted Mike Hess Brewing-Dirt Devil Racing logo Growler. If you are not up for a Half you can run the 15K, If you had run months prior both the Foxy 5K and Wildhorse 10K all you have left is the Stairway to Heaven 15K and finally take a stab at the legendary Raptor Ridge Trail Half Marathon in October. If you complete all 4 of these races in the progressive series you will earn a truly unique award....and it a'int no dinky medal that will get dusty in your closet. This award is both practical and useful, plus it's really cool! Be warned........both courses are visually stunning, physically and mentally challenging and throws a few hills at you that promises to kick your butt! There is an actual staircase embedded in the side of South Fortuna Mountain that runners in both distances must navigate to the top! You will never forget this one folks.
