Emir and I wanted to do several long ultras this spring since we both are attempting our first 100 miler later this year. It's not always easy to accomplish this though since we do have two small children and we also can't afford to travel ALL the time. Lucky for us Stephan Weiss, uberendurance sports, puts on multiple events in our area. We have both done Blues Cruise 50K and I did the Sloppy Cuckoo 12 hour so we know that his events are always well run and lots of fun. The Dirty German was no different.
The Dirty German takes place in Pennypack Park which is the same place as the Sloppy Cuckoo. The Sloppy Cuckoo was a 6.55 mile loop and Dirty German was a 16 mile loop. It's only a short 15-20 minute drive from our house. Since my mom is still on the mend, our amazing neighbors let the kids sleepover and hang with them for the day, even taking Niko to his final kids race of the spring :-)
