Salt Point Trail Run
Come run the ancient trails of the Pomo people. You will go back in time as you witness the wonder of rugged coastline, sandstone cliffs, kelp-dotted coves, tide pools, pygmy forests and panoramic views. August along the coast normally makes for favorable weather for a fast run. These pristine and historic trails should be on every trail runner and ultra-marathoner's bucket list.
This event will be Saturday: 50K, 26K, 15K, 9K
The park caps the event at just 200 runners, combined for all distances and will keep this a special and intimate experience.
In addition, to a fun-filled day and Pacific Coast Trail Runs unique vibe, you will enjoy World class aid stations, high energy volunteers, and the BBQ atmosphere at the finish line we are known for.
Camping on both Friday and Saturday night at Ocean Cove Campground only a few hundred yards from the beach. We have prepaid for 20 spots in two adjoining group camp sites. First come first serve for spots. Each spot comes with room for one car. See below for additional park charge for those with two cars and one tent.Essentially, we can squeeze in a few more tents, but are being safe with 20 at this time. Each nightly tent reservation made through the registration system will come with one ticket for Friday Pasta Feed and on ticket for Saturday nights Cowboy Cook out. Each additional ticket will be $10. Adult Beverages included.
Ocean Cover Campground Rules on for the day of events. Each additional car you bring in for your tent site you reserved with me, will incur a $27 charge. Any day use visit by non campers will be charged $7. Both fees will be collected by the park.
Friday night, Race Director, Greg Lanctot will prepare his famous Tomato, Basil and Garlic sauce over angel hair pasta with all the fixings. This is the reason my wife married me, so she says ;-) Also, going to get my sister in law to make her linguini mac and cheese, my fav. Any questions, send email to RD to the right.
