About This Activity

Join us for the Dirty Deeds Offroad Triathlon on the UAF trail system.  This sprint distance course will be a fun way to explore some great trails in our back yard and is a good race for those new to triathlon.

After a 300 yard swim in the Patty Center pool, hop onto your bike for a 10K taste of UAF's ski trails.  You'll cover parts of the Skarland 6-mile loop, the baseline winter trail, T-field, and potato patch.  Not to worry if these names mean nothing; the course will be well marked. Really.  It may also be boggy and muddy to add to the fun factor.  Your bike is dropped at the overlook at the top of Kuskokwim Drive to begin the run.

The 5K run retraces the baseline winter trail then goes through the potato patch and covers the entire Midnight Express trail, finishing up the lighted loop to the overlook.

This is a moderately difficult course.  All the trails are well established and used regularly.  There are some areas with tree roots and a short section where a daydreamer could wedge a bike wheel between logs paralleling the trail but nothing requires advanced mountain biking skills.
