Welcome to the 2020 Dizzy Fifties!

Thank you for your interest in our race!

We are currently working on a way to continue to hold Dizzy! We have pushed registration back in order to have a better idea of what we will be facing in November. Stay tuned!

2019 we ran the course in one direction. 2018 we ran it the other direction! What will we do in 2020?

The Dizzy Fifties is 50k trail race. The course is a loop configuration that includes a hilly loop and a flat loop!
The course will be well marked. Because paying attention and studying the course is optional, some folks will still have plenty of opportunities to get lost!

The total cutoff time will be 9 hours or 4pm.

AID STATIONS!!! The 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.
We are partnering with Tony Osani and Valley Pizza to provide post race pizza!
