Dirty Feet Productions was founded in 2007 after creation of Orange County's first ever 50/50 ultra marathon - The Twin Peaks 50/50.
Dirty Feet was originally launched to fill the niche of ultra distance trail runs that were not offered at the time in Orange County. In 2006, Jessica also founded the first visible trail running group in Orange County - The Orange County Trail Runners (since split into the Orange County Trail Runners and the SoCal Trailheadz). The goal for the races and the group was to bring the joys of trail running in and around Orange County to the masses. The Orange County area is now home to a thriving trail running community with two large trail running groups and several other trail race organizations, offering OC area runners many opportunities to get their feet dirty!
In order to offer a better runner and spectator experience (at our races and hopefully others), we debuted our new Runner Tracking Application at the Harding Hustle 30k in 2010. Check it out here.
We specialize in well-organized, but non-flashy races. We are usually one of the lowest-cost races around* but we don't skimp on quality! The early entry fee for the Twin Peaks 50 mile in 2011 was only $77. We DO provide the usual essentials (more than you will get at most marathons), such as post-race food, fun, snacks, water, electrolytes, medical aid, well-marked courses, tech shirts, medals, etc. If you are looking for a race with a $5,000 cash prize, 18 gourmet aid stations and $1000 finish-line banner then you might barking up the wrong trail. If you are looking for fun, challenging races with ALL of the essentials but none of the flash - then come get your feet dirty with us! (*A sampling of other 50 mile races in early 2011 listed early entry fees of $85, $90, $95, $100, $110 and $140)
Dirty Feet's mission is to provide dirt, fun, and quality at a reasonable cost. Come check out one of our events and get your feet dirty. You will be glad you did!
