We have a new "Twist" on the Twisted Ankle Trail Race for 2020! Same great courses and lovely park, but we will be running for the entire month of September!!!
Check us out on Facebook!
2020 has been a year of change, adaptation, and resilience. The 2020 Twisted Ankle Trail Race will still happen this year, but with a slightly different format. We want you to enjoy getting outside, to challenge yourself, get a little dirty, and take a deep breath of fresh air.
The 5K and 10-mile courses will be marked for the entire month of September for you all to enjoy. Read through the site for the guidelines and come run on the best day(s) for 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.
