Whether you are training for your first 50k, dabbling in the 12-mile distance at the Golden Gate Dirty 30, or you are more of an experienced trail runner, getting your nutrition and training structured and optimized to support your health and racing goals has numerous short- and long-term benefits.

Are you confused whether you should pursue high carb, low carb, keto, or some other diet? Do you have fat loss as one of your goals? Do you know your daily diet needs some help but not sure where to start? Are you unsure how many calories and what type of fuel you should consume for your training runs and your race? Are you unsure of how to structure your running workouts so you avoid those nagging injuries while maximizing your potential? Are you someone who would rather just go for runs and let someone else worry about the how to of it all? Would you like to be supported by a world-class coach and sport dietitian to have expert guidance? Do you want to be part of the 100% finish rate of the Dirty 30 racers? Do you prefer to finish with tears of Joy rather than tears of pain? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then get on board with this exciting and one-of-a-kind opportunity!

Who’s this program for? Experienced ultra-runners, trail runners, or any first timers to the Dirty 30 Running. You can be signed up for any race distance at either the Golden Gate Dirty 30 or the Silverton Ultra Marathon to participate.
