5K, 10 Mile and 13.1 mile trail races
Check us out on Facebook!
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. 2023 will see the half marathon (13.1) back! 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 Trail Races at Sloppy Floyd State Park.
All runners will encounter wide trails, some single track and a trip up to Marble Mine. 10-Milers and the half marathoners 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.
