Registration closes: Sat, Apr 21 @ 11:59PM

Forest Ranch Four

Join us for the first foot race to ever go through Forest Ranch, Ca (just a 20 minute drive from Chico)!

Run through an enchanted forest, along Butte Creek and past the old mining areas that pulled out some of the counties' largest gold nuggets during the gold rush. Enjoy wide, dirt trails that allow you to run uncongested and chat with friends or take the lead and relish in wide open spaces. 

Take in stunning views of Carpenter and Thatcher Ridges and breathe in crisp, clean, fresh air. During your run, you will be surrounded by the forest, spring wildflowers and bright green moss covered rocks.

Like all Intrepid Adventures races, the Forest Ranch Four is dog friendly and family friendly. Walkers and hikers are invited to join us on the 4 mile distance, through the woods (please be sure and register, even if you are walking/hiking). If you are running the 50k, your forest adventure will take you up to Butte Meadows, to the infamous Bambi Inn (of the Loco race series and BMT).

There will be FREE camping at packet pick up/start line shuttle pick up location Saturday night (the night before the race) with live music and a bonfire so that runners and their family can wake up and catch the shuttle to the start line in the morning. The camping location is just steps away from the local mountain cafe, The Pitts Stop, serving food and stocked with beer and wine!
