3 days, 3 races, 1 hell of a weekend!
The 2017 Mokelumne River race will now start at the Gold Run campgrounds area, where you, your family, friends and trail running group can camp over the weekend and participate in all the different events happening all weekend long.
Runners participating in all 3 days of running will be awarded with a finishers gym bag. You must complete all three races to receive it, 5k or 10k, 50k or 50mi, and half marathon.
The course runs on the beautiful Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail
. Known for its vibrant wildflowers, specimen flowers along the trail will be labeled with small flags from the Lower Log Boom to Patti’s Point (the Longest Mile).
The out-and-back course runs along the Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail and winds along the Mokelumne River past California’s historic mining towns and old mines. Drink in the beautiful scenic views of Camanche and Pardee Lakes, oak woodlands, gorgeous wildflowers, the “Longest Mile Trail,” and wildlife that often includes the majestic Bald Eagle.
Please be aware that between the climbing and the possible/probable heat that the 50 mile course is not an easy race. Proper training is highly recommended. The 50 mile race has approximately 10,000 feet of climb.
Many thanks to the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) for their assistance, as well as their custodianship of the Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail and the watershed lands.
