The Duel

ALERT!!! (12/29/15) – DUE TO RECENT FLOODING ON OUR WEE-CHI-TAH DIRT TRAIL, WE REGRET TO REPORT THAT THERE WILL BE NO DIRT TRAIL EVENTS THIS YEAR. ALL MARATHON, HALF MARATHON & 10K EVENTS WILL BE HELD ON THE PAVED TRAIL. Those participants previously registered for the dirt trail have been moved to the paved trail. You will also have the option to defer your entry to next year or to our dirt trail event in August.


We have moved all the dirt runners to the paved events.  If you were a dirt runner and wish to defer to our August dirt run or to next year’s Duel dirt event please email me at


We apologize for this inconvenience.


It’s is amazing to me that we have just come out of a 5-year drought and now we have broken all rain fall records since they began keeping them in 1915.


We look forward to seeing you on January 16 with your road running shoes on!


No matter how much we try, we can never control Mother Nature!
