Welcome to the Inaugural!
For years we have dreamed of holding a combined trail marathon and 50 mile ultra-marathon on these amazing trails and at last it's going to happen! Plus a beautiful 15K for you sprinters! The 50 mile course is very hard for most of the first 10 miles and fast after that (if you haven't left it all on the big 2000' in 1.5 mile climb on trail 26). Fantastic views of the three Shastas (mountain, lake, dam).
The marathon starts on the dam and finishes at the Sundial Bridge. Fast, 800' net elevation loss, no hills of significance! 1 mile on the dam, 21 miles single track dirt, and the last 4 on a paved bike path.
