Run or Hike!

Dirty Snowflake 4 Hour Race

Complete as many 2 mile loops as you want in 4 hours (10 AM - 2 PM )


Silver Springs Park Lodge
5027 Stow Road
Stow, OH 44224


Kick off your race year with the Dirty Snowflake 4 Hour Race. Run or hike as many 2 mile loops as you want, for as much time as you want, up to 4 hours! Your finish time will be based on your 3 fastest loops (6 miles). Awards will be given for both fastest loops AND most loops completed! Start time is flexible, and you can rest between loops and the rest time doesn't count against you! This is more than a race. Reps from ON Cloud, Oofos, Altra, Vertical Runner, and NovaCare will be onsite with their best chili recipes. Test some demo shoes, vote for the best chili, and hang out with your trail friends at Stow's Silver Springs Lodge!


The Dirty Snowflake course drains well and will be good to go for the weather conditions. Click here to view the Dirty Snowflake course map.
