Scenic historic trails through the Sierra National Forest. The 50k run takes you past 3000 year old Giant Sequoias in the famous Nelder Grove. The brand new 20k run course takes you on many of the same trails as the gorgeous 50k course. Elevation is 5,000 - 6,500 ft. Time limit for 50k: 8 hours. Pets are not allowed on the trail, so please leave your doggies at home!
For those of you that are interested we have opened the option to stay onsite the night prior to the race Friday, June 9th at Camp Green Meadows in the Dorms.
We will also be hosting the traditional pre race Lasagna dinner on Friday, June 9th at roughly 6pm in the Green Meadows Dining Hall.
