Uberendurancesports proudly presents the Dirty Austrian Trail Fest, an alpine themed trail running experience without the elevation.
This race features Brats and Sauerkraut at the finish line, Uberhans on his Hohner accordion (I'm sure he knows how to play the Sound of Music), our whimsical imported weatherhouse awards from Germany, and of course our top notch aidstations.
A race catering to hikers, new trail runners and seasoned pros as well. Our 20KM (and even 40K) course is very hiker friendly.
You have 9 hours to finish the 20K/40K with aidstation/waterstops every 2-3 mile.
Elevation of the course is very manageable, most of the trails are not very difficult. This race takes place in Pennypack Park, a wonderful green oasis within the city limits of Philadelphia, you will be surrounded by the forests and meadows the entire time. This race is modeled after the Dirty German race, which takes place at the same park in May, but features a brand new course. Over 50% of the course will be new to runners who previously ran the Dirty German. Pick a distance, setup your basecamp at the start/finish and hang out after you are finished and cheer for the other runners.
It's a good time, you will enjoy it.
As usual, you can expect top notch organization and a well-marked course. The best aidstations around will get you through the race, and Uberhans, America's toughest accordion player will be at the finish to entertain you. We also have great swag and 2 professional chefs, feeding you at the post race party. This is a great time of the year running this race. The air is typically brisk and the leaves are changing color. What are you waiting for, become a trail runner today.
