“All day long both Saturday and Sunday we were met with such positive feedback from our cyclists and runners,” said Michelle Duffy, associate marketing director for Life Time Events — Off-Road Cycling and Trail Running. “They raved about the course, the community and the down-home feel of Trinidad and [the] Rad Dirt Fest. Over and over we were told by participants they would undoubtedly be back next year. And of course, we will be back in 2022.”
