We are back for 2024....
2023 was the biggest year so far for the Dirty South Roubaix and we plan to go a bit bigger again this year. The 8th installment of the Dirty South Roubaix is coming up on March 2 2024. Last year we sold out to the 600 registered in just a few weeks and we are going to bump it up a bit more this round. Alto Pass has been so welcoming, that we will be back there again. Like last year, we are planning to offer the 100k+ as the main event of the day, but will also offer a shorter course for anyone who doesn't want to tackle the full 100k. The short course will be somewhere near half of the 100k. Don't worry, it will still have hills and gravel ;) The racers from the Half Dirty sure didn't feel shortchanged after their race.
If you are looking for an awesome route, great challenge, killer scenery, beer, food and cool friends to hang out with for a day, come check it out.
Thanks for your interest!
Registration opens at 8:00am CST on 11/26.
For the 100k event we will be splitting the results and awards into age groups so will be doing that this year. When you register, the website will place you into the correct category per your age and gender. There will still be awards for top 3 male and female overall, but will also be awards for top 3 in each age group. The age groups will be split into 10 year blocks.
A 53 year old female would sign up for the 100k race. The system would put her in the Female 50-59 category. She will be competing for the overall award and the award for the 50-59 age group.
Some of you took advantage of the referral discount last year, so we are running it again this year. If you share the link provided to you after you register and 5 of your friends use that link to register, you get a refund of $10.
St. Nicholas Brewing Company is stepping up again to provide a beer to all participants. Each participant will be given a token for a beer. They can use the token at packet pickup, after the race or at any of the St. Nicholas Brewing Co locations in the future. We are also teaming up with the Havisham Bourbon, Brew and Spirts House in Alto Pass to offer additional drink options along with St. Nicholas Beer for purchase. Another change for this year will be food trucks providing the post race food. We plan to have at least 2 different food vendors on site and will give all participants a credit for the vendor of your choice. We feel this will give everyone more options for food.
Packet pickup the night before the race will be located at the St.. Nicholas Brewing Company location at the Carbondale airport (airport code MDH). They have an awesome restaurant and bar at the newly built airport building. With this spot close to the event, we hope to get many racers come to packet pickup the night before. We would love if we just had a few packets left for pickup the morning of the race.
