Course Info

Arkfeld Farms is a privately owned farm in Bennington, NE, whose owners want to turn it into an outdoor adventure park for bikers and runners. The single track winds through a beautiful property with a pond, and the course even takes you through a few beautiful barns. Each loop will alternate the direction of travel offering a “dizzy” and unique spirit of camaraderie.​

In case you get “dizzy”, the course will be well marked with flags, tape, and arrows. Two colors will indicate the direction of travel, which will change after each completed loop.

Aid Stations

There are 2 aid stations: at the Start/Finish and at Motivation Station, approximately 1.75 miles into each loop of the race.

There is no other way to describe Motivation Station other
than fun, and maybe just a little bit necessary. Our Motivation Station captains are experienced ultra-veterans who are there to serve you. While they are a fun bunch, they will also monitor your condition for your safety and that of the other runners. Because of its proximity to the start/finish area, there will be no food; however, water, Hammer Heed, and ice will be available.

The Start/Finish aid station will have a spread of food available, from oranges and bananas to watermelon, pretzels, pickles, and much more.

Drop Bags

A designated drop bag area will be under a tent in the start/finish area. Please mark your bags clearly with your name and bib number.


Average temperatures this time of year range from a low of 64 degrees to 90 degrees. It is usually humid. It’s imperative you remain hydrated before, during, and after the race.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a requirement for number of loops to run?

You need to complete 1 lap per hour.

  • Since the course is so short and there are 2 aid stations, do I need to have a hydration device?

YES. You are required to have at least 1 hydration device with you for the duration of this race. Since it tends to be extremely hot and humid this time of year, it’s required that you carry a hydration device with you at all times.

  • Do you allow pacers for this race?

Limited pacing is allowed, however, due to the growth of the Dizzy GOAT we must ask that you have no more than one additional person at a time on the trail with you. This is especially important later in the day when all runners are present.

  • How do I volunteer?

Shoot an email over to Race Director Brady West at brady@goatz.org and tell him all about your desire to volunteer. He’ll get you hooked up in the right spot!

  • How will I know what direction I’m going?

The Dizzy GOAT course will be run both directions. Odd numbered loops will run clockwise and be marked with PINK flags. Remember to keep pink flags and tape to your right. Even numbered loops will run counterclockwise and be marked with GREEN flags – Remember to keep green flags and tape on your right.

In order to keep track of your laps and direction, all runners will be given a PINK silicone wristband at Race Day Check In. PINK wristbands indicate odd/clockwise loops, whereas GREEN wristbands indicate even/counterclockwise loops. The different colors will allow course monitors to guide runners in the proper direction, as well as help other runners identify with those heading in the same direction.
