We are excited to announce the official launch of the “Ohio Dirt & Gravel Series” – a series designed to bring the excellence of the combined HFP Racing and Greenswell Events experience to the ever-growing trail running and gravel biking community of Ohio and surrounding states.
The Ohio Dirt & Gravel Series, powered by MyLaps, opens in June for all runners, hikers, and ruckers – from young to old, amateur to elite – infusing the signature HFP and Greenswell mix of community, which will add challenge and adventure to your trail running experience. The trail series showcases some of the Buckeye State’s best trail running locations.
Trail running distances will include shorter distances at each event, but the series will consist of longer distance of 25K to 50K and include a 12-Hour Endurance Trail Run and Central Ohio’s first-ever last buckeye standing trail race.
A team category, aka “duo racing”, also forms a fun and unique part of the series for those who prefer to not run alone and for select races there is a relay team category allowing a team of 3-5 to take on the course in a fun group approach.
Another fun addition is the inclusion of segment challenges awarding the top lap speedsters, climbers and bombers across a defined section of the course. Challenges will be in select races only so be sure to check the race details to know where and what races to “drop the hammer”.
In early May, we will announce more details of our Gravel Biking series that takes place later this year.
