This was an amazing event! It was extremely difficult and wish I didn't make this my first half marathon. Regardless of that fact though, the event was run very well and the staff was great. The location had plenty of parking. The terrain was just fine for a trail run. And when they say thrill in the hills, they are definitely not joking about the hills.
This is my third year running Thrills (two previous halfs there, this year I did the full), and I will definitely be back next year! Great organization and volunteers. Nice course!
This was my third half at Yargo and I have run about 2 dozen Dirty Spokes events. This is as good as it gets. Great shirts, awards, lots of extras, superb in every way.
This was my third year in a row running this race and it was probably the best executed one yet. I get my money's worth and then some with every Dirty Spokes event. This race is what made me fall in love with trail running. Thanks Tim!

This was a beautiful course! The trail was very well marked and the race was very well organized. I thought it was a fast course! Thanks Tim (Dirty Spokes) for making trail racing so much fun! I will try to make this an annual race, and I highly recommend it. Just remember to sign up early.
This is my first trail half marathon and I had a blast. I did not know what to expect, and I find the course relatively fast. I will like to see the finishing medal have the words " Half Marathon" written on it. Great organized race and location.
Great race! Enjoyed it even more this year. Only one complaint....Organizers really should not allow MP3 players/ music devices on the run. Several times it proved difficult to get around people who had their music blaring.
This was my first 1/2 marathon and I LOVED it! I can't wait until the next one! I vote you hold a 1/2 marathon and full marathon at the GA International Horse Park at some point! Dirty Spokes was my first trail run originally and I fell in love with it. Been running trails regularly since and am so excited to have a 1/2 under my belt...trails too no less. Thanks so much for putting this together!
