We expect a full recovery for 2021's races and to be back to the traditional racing format. We all had experiences in 2020 that taught us that "things change". While we hope that will not be the case this year, please grant us some flexibility in the event we have to make modifications to make this happen. We want to be here as bad as you! 

 

If you are new to trail running and would like to "get a taste of the trail" (*which can be habit forming) try out the 5K -3.1mile (ish). For those who want to test their grit, run the 10-mile (ish) race up to Becky's Bluff. Whether you are a seasoned trail runner looking for an excellent ramp up to the fall race season, or looking for a reason to try running in the woods, you will not be disappointed with the Twisted Ankle Race at Sloppy Floyd State Park.

All runners will encounter wide trails, some single track and their way up to Marble Mine. 10-Milers will hit the heart and soul of the Twisted Ankle Race as they top Becky's Bluff for a short trip on the Pinhoti Trail. Rocks and roots included.

Sloppy Floyd State Park is located in the beautiful foothills of Northwest Georgia. The park showcases 561 acres and two lakes that total 51 acres. You will find 25 tent/trailer/RV sites, 4 cabins, and 4 back country sites along with fishing, kayak and paddleboat rentals, and monthly activities.
