The forested slopes and steep, cool canyons of Huddart Park and Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve are a trail running paradise within the heart of the San Francisco Peninsula. Along the many small streams and gullies, runners will enjoy the beautiful trails under the canopy of towering 2nd and 3rd generation, moss covered redwoods. As you climb, you’ll enter the mixed evergreen forest, which leads to the drier chaparral and manzanita covered area of the ridge-line. Soak in the breath-taking views – and hills – on these pine covered, twisting single-track trails, including the renowned Crystal Springs and Skyline Trails. Keep your eyes pealed, as you’ll probably be sharing the trails with black-tailed deer, coyotes, bobcats and grey foxes. Distances of 10K, Half Marathon, 35K and 50K make for the perfect proving grounds for runners, and hikers, of all abilities – from first time trail runner to grizzled, ultra-marathon veteran.

Aid Station Supplies
Inside Trail Racing aid stations are replete with an optimal variety of glycogen-replenishing, electrolyte-replacing products. The following is a list of some of the foods and beverages each aid station may provide: Gu Energy gels, chews, and Stroopwafels, trail mix, pretzels, potato chips, Oreo cookies, Pop Tarts, boiled potatoes with salt, Coke, Mountain Dew, Ginger Ale, water, Tailwind Endurance Fuel, PB&J sandwiches, M&M’s, Mike & Ike’s, salt tablets, bananas, watermelon, and tangerines. Aid stations are also equipped with general first aid items, including Salt-Stick tablets, but no anti-inflammatory medicine.
Tailwind is mixed so that it contains 180 – 200 calories per 20 fluid ounces.
As distances between aid station vary, we strongly encourage all runners to carry at least one 20oz bottle during their run.
Without the support of enthusiastic and caring volunteers producing our races would not be possible. Volunteers of all ages and abilities help with setup, check-in, aid stations, course marshaling, timing, and post-race food.
Volunteering is a fun, novel way to experience races, play in the outdoors, and spend time with friendly people. All volunteers receive a free race T-shirt, free food, and the ability to earn credit toward a future Inside Trail Racing event, commensurate to the amount of time worked. Five hours of assisting an event results in a free race credit or Inside Trail merchandise.

The Fine Print
Entry fees to our trail runs are non-refundable, and we do not offer transfers or deferrals to future races. However, with advanced notice, we are happy to credit part of your entry fee to a future Inside Trail Racing event. A credit worth 50% of paid entry fee will be awarded up to three weeks out from the event time. There will be no credits issued if a cancellation is declared within three weeks of the race start. Credits will be available for 1 full year from the date of the race.
Local time: 12:43 AM
Only registered runners can participate, and you may not exchange your entry with another individual.
We do not cancel races due to rain or heat. An act of God, such as earthquake, fire, or other natural disaster, which causes the area of a race to be closed may force cancellation or relocation of the event. If a race location is changed due to park closures, we will automatically transfer the registration over to the new venue, or we will issue credits in accordance with our cancellation policy. In the event a race is completely cancelled, or needs to be rescheduled, we will transfer a portion of your entry fee to another ITR event. Again, credits will be valid for 1 year.
Due to trail work, closures, or for myriad other reasons, permitting agencies may require changes to the publicized courses at any time prior to an event. This is out of our control, and we therefore will not offer refunds or credits in such a situation.
Hosting a trail running event is an expensive and risky endeavor. All race costs are paid for well in advance of race day, so there is no financial gain to be made if a person does not show up on race day. We want all of our registered runners to show up, run, and have fun. While we understand that injuries, conflicts, emergencies, deaths, and other unfortunate events happen and may impact your plans for participation, we must adhere to our cancellation policies.
