DIRT, SWEAT AND GEARS HITS THE TRAIL JUNE 22

Mountain Biking 1210066 1920

Tuscaloosa County is playing host to a mountain biker and hiker’s dream competition next weekend.

Dirt, Sweat and Gears is a trail duathlon featuring a 10K mountain bike portion and a 3K running portion at Lake Lurleen State Park happening June 22.

But a unique thing about the event, said Event Coordinator Brandt Lapish, is if your skills lean more to one side than another you can pair up with a partner to complete the other half of the race.

In its fourth year, the event is a fundraiser for DCH Sports Medicine and Encore Rehabilitation so they can provide services at high school events and help keep athletes safe.
