It's not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves. -Sir Edmund Hillary
Get ready to summit the tallest mountain in the Siskiyou range...or do it twice! This festive race to celebrate mountain running climbs Mt. Ashland through the ski area, then descends the "back bowls" around the mountain to return to the start.
Local time: 2:16 PM
All races start at 9:00am. Packet pick-up is 7:30 - 8:45am at the ski area. There will be a pre-race briefing at 8:55am at the start line.
The race will start and finish in the ski area parking lot. The course will follow the Mt. Ashland Summit Trail, climbing nearly 1,000' in about a mile. Catch your breath at "the ball" and then descent back to the ski area using Forest Service Roads 300 and 20. You can view the Strava route at https://www.strava.com/routes/3044331369622839442. Each lap is approximately 3.9 miles at 921' of vertical climb.
There are two options this year: 1 lap or 2 laps!
As in "stuff we all get". As if running a great race isn't enough, every finisher will also receive a nice commemorative item, as well as a finisher medal. Finish party will include refreshments. Shirts and other items are available as add-ons.
