August 16, 2020 - Sorry, we have reached capacity this year!

Let's get back to racing in a safe a fun way, the Dirty Dozen Off Road Run at Holiday Valley Resort!

With in-person races cancelled the last few months we have been looking for a safe way to offer running races and an off road race is great way to get back into it.  The race will be on Holiday Valley resort property with 4 and 8 mile off road options. 

In order to keep everyone well spaced out throughout the course, we have various start windows set up during sign up.  Just arrive ready to run anytime during your start window and away you go!  We will have chip timing to keep track of your overall time.

Entries Limited - Registration is now closed for this year.

Due to the short notice and spacing requirements, entries will be very limited. Online registration will close Thursday August 13th at midnight.

Feel Good By Helping Others

With so many people struggling right now we want to help.  All profits and 100% of all donations will be given to our local food pantries in Ellicottville & Great Valley.  Our goal is to raise $1,000 to help those in need.


Our course is roughly a 4 mile off road loop (two laps for the 8 miler) around Holiday Valley property with the vast majority 15 feet wide.  The majority is non-technical dirt road with 1/4 mile of downhill running that is moderately steep.

While not technical, the course is fairly hilly. But for every up hill, there is a downhill! 

There will be one water stop for the 4 mile run and three for the 8 miler.

For tentative course, please see the map at the bottom of this page and check out the video of the course.

Yes, but there are some exceptions.  Please see the New York State's website HERE for the latest guidance for those traveling from other states.
