Bay Area Ridge Trail Series

Los Gatos, CA – Along with 15 already scheduled events, Pacific Coast Trail Runs (PCTR) is introducing the only four-race trail running series in Northern California with a portion of each runner entry fee from the series being donated directly to the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. The first event on August 12, 2017, is the inaugural “The Ridge,” featuring 62, 32, and 18 kilometer, point-to-point trail races along sections of the Bay Area Ridge Trail from Lagunitas in Marin County to Crissy Field in San Francisco. The other three events in this iconic new series will include sections of the Bay Area Ridge Trail on September 23 in Mt. Madonna, November 4 in Saratoga, and November 18 in Woodside.

“The Bay Area Ridge Trail vision is to create a continuous 550 mile loop that traces the ridgelines above San Francisco Bay,” said Council Executive Director Janet McBride. “Currently 370 miles are open for runners, hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.”

New Trail Run Series Announced for Bay Area

Pacific Coast Trail Runs to Produce Bay Area Ridge Trail Series According to owner Greg Lanctot, “When we bought PCTR last Fall we promised to raise the bar with unique, high-quality events in new locations. All of the races in this new series are within a drivable geographic area, there are some new courses, and this unique series benefits an organization that is important to trail runners.” There will be special prizes for runners who complete two, three and four races, as well as points accumulation prizes and total distance prizes. To register for any of these races visit pctrailruns.com. To learn more about the Bay Area Ridge Trail visit ridgetrail.org

Shuttle Service:
All participants will have the option to take the shuttle from Crissy Field. Park at Presidio and buses with 50 Runner each will be delivered to their respective starting locations. This means reserve your spot now in registration mode for $12. Or, have a friend or family member drop you off.
