Meet "Lizzy" our new race mascot.

On a recent trail scouting trip we found a small alligator lizard trapped inside one of the latrine buildings at the camp shelters site. She (or he...how can you tell?) was unable to climb up the wall or get out under the door, and was suffering from the cold temperature. With a little bit of assistance Lizzy was liberated out into the sunlight and warmth of the meadow and was last seen warming up on a rock! So if you see a lizard on your run it just might be her!

Hot Showers and a Cold Beer after your run!

Catered post-race lunch!

Camping onsite for those who want to pre-run the trails or have a getaway weekend.




Dirt Inspires

Trail Runs


Dirt Inspires is going through a re-evaluation right now. Quite honestly, the course at Fort Ord is too hard and hot in August. We don't know yet if we are going to find another venue or retire the race. At the current time we do not have plans to produce a race for 2015. Please check back for updates and we'll let you know what is going on with Dirt Inspires in the future.


Results from the 2014 race are posted.

Photos are available here.

Pre-Race Information PDF is available here.

Do you have friends or family who would like to get on the course and cheer you on? We need volunteer course monitors. Please send us an email if you have someone willing to help out.


The start and finish of the race will take place at a location on top of a hill within the Laguna Seca Recreation Area overlooking the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway and hills surrounding the area.

Runners will enter the BLM lands through a gate by Skyline Road and continue onto the roads and trails with expansive views to both the ocean and the Salinas Valley.

There's a lot to do in the Monterey area. You can make a whole weekend of running, camping, sightseeing or taking advantage of some of the spas and hotels in the area.
