“Welcome to the BayTrailrunners Vista Verde Skyline Run - 10K.”— Robert Rhodes
Featured Race - Oct 26, 2019
At the trailhead for Ipiwa, go left and run along the ridge and check out the gorgeous views that extend out to the coast. Runners will cross over Sunny Jim and follow Ipiwa along Alpine Pond. There is a water stop here so fill up if needed. Follow the ribbons and head through the tunnel to the parking lot for Russian Ridge. Pick up the Ridge Trail at the bathroom and start a gentle climb into a vast expanse of open meadows and rolling hills.
Follow your colored ribbon heading left on Bo Gimbal Trail and take a short trip through some shady woodlands. At Ancient Oaks, head left again and follow it back out to Ridge Trail. Continue on through the parking lot and tunnel (more water if needed), run a short distance along Ipiwa Trail and take a left on Sunny Jim Trail. You'll meet up again with Ipiwa where you'll take a sharp left and follow it out to the finish.
