“A challenging trail marathon in the historic Purisima Creek Open Space in Woodside, CA.”— Robert Rhodes
Featured Race - Feb 17, 2019
At the height of the lumbering industry and during the Gold Rush, Purisima's overflowing redwood forests were being clearcut to supply the demand for the prized wood. Imagine a time when teams of oxen, lumberjacks, wagons and small cabins crowded the forests. To warn of falling trees, whistle punks would alert these bustling mills with a blaring ring of his steam whistle.
The BayTrailrunners Whistle Punk Deuce is the first organized trail race ever held in Purisima Creek Redwoods OSP! It is open to all levels of trail runners. While it is mostly non-technical, there are some considerable uphill climbs. Experts can use this race to measure their progress, while first time racers looking for a new challenge will find this to be an excellent starting point to their trail racing adventures.
