Welcome to the 2017 Dizzy Fifties!
The 2017 Dizzy Fifties registration will begin August 1. We will continue to update this page as the race is finalized.
NEW IN 2017 - We have a few changes to our event!!!
50k only this year. Due to the limited interest in the 40 and 50 miler, we have decided to only offer the 50k going forward.
New course! We were able to make some modifications to the course since we no longer need a course that accommodates three different distances.
We are sure that the changes we have made will make the event even better than before!

The Dizzy Fifties is 50k trail race. There is a new course for 2017!
What has changed? We no longer have the little loop. We still have the traditional north and south loop configuration but you will notice some slight changes! The north loop is extended and takes you around the Logan Trail. The order in which you run the south loop has been reconfigured to help minimize opportunities to get lost.
The new loop brings you back to the pavilion every 10.5 miles. We will have one additional aid station at the 4.5 mile mark. So you will have two opportunities for aid each loop to keep everyone hydrated.
Here is a link to a google map of the new course. This is still a work in process. It will be a three loop course:
