About Us

Dirt Runner has one of the TOUGHEST 4 MILE TRAILS YOU WILL EVER RUN!

In 2015 we will have two events with trail lengths of 4 Miles long.

Dirt Runner is about great competition and amazing post race atmosphere. Our trails utilize the best natural landscape around Chicagoland, no and’s if’s or but’s about it!  You can expect 4 miles of incredible terrain, 40+ tough obstacles and a total elevation change of over 1200 ft.

Dirt Runner course will test beginners and top athletes – Run the course as many times as you want in the same day. Our year round events offer smaller crowds for any race and eliminate the waiting time to tackle any obstacle. All runners are free to set their own pace. Everybody can try any obstacle more than once during the race.

As if that wasn’t enough, nobody can beat our festival area activities! Test your balance and speed on our Ninja Warrior/Wipeout style course.   Show off your strength on the Samson ladder, Warped Wall, and pegboard climb. We also got slacklines, slosh pipes, tire flip, rope climb, and more.

Now it wouldn’t be an obstacle race without plenty of food and beer.  If what you crave isn’t on our menu, bring your own grill and start grilling!  We allow outside food and non-alcoholic drinks!  You can set up your own picnic right in our festival area.  In fact, if your group wants to camp out for the night and run the course again on Sunday morning, we’ll stay and camp out with you!
