Dirty Hector 2024 (May 26)

May 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Dirty Hector 2024, Sunday May 26

This race is the reincarnation of the beloved NatiFo Forty gravel adventure race (2018-2022).   The new race course winds its way through, around, up, down, and across the best trails, cow fields, creeks, mud, forests, dirt, and gravel roads that Hector and the Finger Lakes National Forest have to offer.  The roughly 40 mile race with about 3500′ of elevation gain will start and finish at Silver Queen Farm.  Mass start at 11am.  Open Men’s, Women’s, and Masters categories all start together.  This is not a gravel “road race”! In addition to beautiful NY dirt roads, you can expect some technical trail, mud, grass, water crossings, fence crossings….think gravel meets cyclocross…with lots of hills.  There will be one aid station at about the halfway point with water and Flow Formulas electrolyte/race mix available. Course will be marked with signage but GPS and downloaded route is HIGHLY recommended due to poor reception throughout the route. Roads are open and we will have marshals at busier intersections.  Prizes 3-deep for each race category!  Beer and ice cream at the farm post-race!

Check out the registration page on BikeReg and spread the word if you would!!!    Women’s registration discount code available, contact race organizers.


The final route will be sent out to participants, but the route below will be pretty close to actual!
