2023 Prouty

The Dirty Project

The 2023 Dirty Project is Saturday, July 15!

  • We'll be live and in-person starting from Huntley Meadows, 111 Turnpike Road, Norwich, VT 05055.
  • We are capping the field at 300 riders, so sign up early!
  • Our registration fee is $50 to cover event costs, and you must sign up on BikeReg to take part in the DP. 
  • We strongly encourage you to fundraise a minimum of $100 via PledgeReg or join our team here on the Prouty website.   One hundred percent your donations will support the Prouty.

A brief preview of what you will be up against

  • The DP23 is jam-packed with what you love: gravel, climbing, and lot's of it!  At 83 miles with 10,300 feet elevation gain, this will be one tough course!  We have incorporated many classic DP dirt roads and climbs that have defined the event for 8 years, and added a few new ones!

How it will work

  • July 15 at 7am.
  • Starting and finishing at Huntley Meadows, (111 Turnpike Road, Norwich, VT 05055) 
  • We’ll have GPS files (Ride with GPS and Strava) available to download.
  • 4 supported SAGs but plan to provide your own support as well (it's a long ride!)
  • There will be class IV sections, but the course is generally ridable on a gravel, cross or road bike.  We do recommend 30-cc + tires.

Registration for The Dirty Project is $50, but all participants are encouraged to meet a fundraising minimum of $100.  Needless-to-say, people who ride the DP aren’t generally the type who are satisfied by doing the “minimum”; in 8 years the DP has raised over $500,000 for cancer research at the Dartmouth Cancer Center! This year we are aiming for $50,000!

We look forward to you joining us!
