For those that have run our Dirt Devil Trail Races in the past eight years, we welcome you back for another incredible race season.  For those who are new to our site, we know you will find the perfect trail race for you and your fellow trail runners.  From our 5k distance thru our many Half Marathons … … we host the most well organized, affordable, perfectly marked, gorgeous and often little-known trails for all of our races.  From those who have never set foot on a trail to the most seasoned Ultra runner, a Dirt Devil Racing.com  experience is one you’ll talk about for years to come.  Come join us in the 2016 season as it promises to be better than ever before!

Come run just one race … there are 9 to choose from this year … either of our Four-Race Series offered, to receive great schwag, awesome After Parties, and win prizes for your Age Category, and/or Series Finisher Awards!! The choice is up to you.

Keep in mind, if you want to run a particular series, based on the race distance, or the prizes, please be sure to sign up for ALL four races in the series separately. If the race sells out, and you miss just one, you no longer qualify for any Series Prizes. (But you’ll still have great schwag and fun at the races you do complete!)

The goal of Dirt Devil Racing is to expose runners to all the great trails San Diego County has to offer. These races are held throughout San Diego on beautiful nature trails including Mission Trails Regional Park, Lake Hodges, Otay Lakes, and San Dieguito River Park.

All races provide race goodies (also known as “race schwag”), Finisher’s Award, and individual race prizes are awarded to the overall male and female 1st-3rd place finishers, as well as first place male and female Age Group winners. (All pictures shown on this website are from previous Dirt Devil Races. Schwag and After Party buffets shown are not a guarantee of what will be offered in the 2016 season. We believe it can only get better!!)
