Race Information

We’re a far cry from 1967 when Kathrine Switzer slashed through the gender boundaries at the Boston Marathon.  Now, Women make up a significant percentage of running events, and the running industry is thrilled about it!  To celebrate the positive impact women have had on running and the empowering effect running has had for women, we are putting on a trail race dedicated to the ladies.

The Skirt and Dirt Trail Run is the second race in the She Rocks The Trails Women’s Trail Event Series with NorCalUltras.  The all-female event starts and finishes in Redwood Regional Park, where runners will be greeted by towering redwoods that silently spectate and provide shade to the constantly undulating course. The redwoods share the park with vociferous and towering eucalyptus, together creating a true trail running experience where all of your senses are engaged and the heavy anchor of the cumbersome daily grind is lifted–a wonderful mix of solitude and camaraderie with like-minded runners. The course will give you a taste of some the rarely used single-track trails that will meet you with everything from twisty, rocky paths to dense, moss covered forest. This event will leave you with a new appreciation for this gem located within the city of Oakland.

For the gentlemen, check out our Stud ‘n’ Mud Trail Chase. Try to chase down those ladies out on the trail!
