Dirt Days Trail Series - Mt. Airy Ridge Run

Sunday, May 22, 2022 8:45 am

Mt. Airy Forest, Cincinnati, OH

Mt. Airy Ridge Run is a perennial favorite. This is the largest park in the city and features extensive trails. 

Mt. Airy Forest is, in fact, is one of the larger parks located within a city's limits in the country. Even Central Park can only boast 843 acres, while Mt. Airy holds a massive 1,469.9 acres. The Mt. Airy Forest Ridge Run is aptly named, as the runners will get a wilderness experience that mirrors the Sierras at times. The course winds through all of the features Mt. Airy has to offer, such as its lush evergreens, dense hardwoods, open meadows, flowing rivers, and of course, hill climbs and ridge traverses.

The Mt. Airy Forest Ridge Run will have TWO separate races over different distances. There will be a two lap race (10.6) miles that will begin at 8:45 a.m. There will also be a one lap race (5.4 miles) that will start at 9:00 a.m. We will begin sweeping the course at 10 am so you need to be finished with one lap by then. If you are doing the one-lap event, you do not need to worry about this. 

This is the Third leg of the 2022 Dirt Days Trail Series. Each event will be scored separately and both events will count toward the Series points.

Mt. Airy Ridge Run Update: We have added a "Trekker" category for those who would like to do the 10+ mile course but need extra time to finish. If you think that you need more than 2-2.5 hours to finish, we encourage you to consider the this option. You can start at 8:00 or after instead of nine. You will receive a time and credit for participation. Also, you can finish before all the food is gone!
