The 2016 Santa Cruz Trail Run is completely sold out!
Unfortunately, we will not be accepting any more registrations for this year's event.
Giant redwoods dominate the landscape in our Santa Cruz trail run. Aside from twisting single track that opens up to expansive roads and paths, you’ll enjoy the ocean breezes pouring in from the Santa Cruz coast. The race will offer everything from river crossings to high ridges with aid stations every 5-6 miles for refueling before tackling the next beautiful, albeit strenuous, section. Bring your families and stay after the race to enjoy Henry Cowell park where we’ll have post race food fit for a trail running king or queen!
Parking at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is $10.00. There is limited parking along Highway 9 outside of the park. To save some money, we recommend you carpool from Felton (minutes away from the park) or Santa Cruz.
Information on Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is available here.

At Inside Trail Racing aid stations it’s like an all you can eat buffet, but this is a race, so don’t linger too long! Expect to find variety at our aid stations, including sweet and salty offerings like trail mix, pretzels, cookies, boiled potatoes with salt for dipping, regular soda, water (of course!), elecrolyte drink, PB&J finger sandwiches, gummy bears, salt tablets, you get the idea. There will also be general first aid items but no anti-inflamatory medicine. We strongly encourage you to carry at least one 20oz bottle from which to sip while you enjoy your run.
