“A great 50k race through the redwoods.”— Rodolfo Camacho
Featured Race - Jun 2, 2019
Highlights of the trail include the huge redwoods, a total elevation gain of ~4000ft, and a finish line with the view of the ocean. Runners will cross forests, creeks, and semi-arid terrain (all the way to the top) and exposed conditions, and will enjoy views of the ocean and a pleasant run under the shaded canopy of the forest. The course has a total of 3 main nourishment/check-in camps. The last checkpoint is a bit far spaced about 8 miles apart from the last. The conditions make this point a bit harder to achieve.
Bring at least enough containers for 1L, and don't forget to consume salt pellets in every station.
