"Dirty 30 makes everyone feel supported and loved. When I first did the race, I was expecting competition and a workout. I got those things, but I came away with much more. The whole community supported each other, from the first finisher to the last. And that loving support carried over into events and meet-ups throughout the year. That fun focus on lifting each other up is why Dirty 30 is one of my favorite races in the world."
Our plan for your success
Get ready to smile your way through these races. At the Dirty 30 we have the goal of a 100% finish rate. That’s because I want you to love trail running and be good at it! It is very important to us that everyone who takes on the challenge of these tough races gets to experience the feeling of a finish. The Dirty 30 and Silverton Ultra Dirty finish lines are special places, and we await your arrival with big hugs and welcoming cheers. We celebrate you because we know you worked so hard to get here.
Here’s how we help you do it
Below are the resources we have put in place for you—from our Training Plan to Happy Hour Events and Course Preview Runs. Plus, check out the great training advice from our partners.
5-Month Static Training Program
This training program begins on January 1. We will email it out to each entrant on December 21. If you register after December 21, we will email it to you after you register.
If you are looking for a more detailed plan, one more specific to your situation and needs, or wanting to have one tailored for the 100K or 100M, consider hiring David or Megan Roche or another ultra running coach. My experience with hiring a good ultra running coach is well worth the investment.
4-Month Strength and Conditioning Program
This training program begins on February 1. We will email it out to each entrant at the end of January. If you register after this date, we will email it to you after you register.
Your success is our business!
I have also set the goal of a 100% finish rate. There is nothing sweeter than crossing the finish line of a hard ultra marathon. I want to make sure you achieve your goal of completing these beautiful, life-changing races and do it well. Your accomplishment is everything. The Dirty 30 Happy-Hour events, Group Runs, Training Program, and Course-Preview runs give you the tools and connections you need to be successful. We are all in this together, and we’ve got you covered!
