Join Us In Mendocino!

This year, we're moving to new home! Come join us off the Mendocino Coast in Mendocino Woodlands Park. As in the past, we're run a looped course through stunning wilderness and across murmuring streams. In our 2019 location the look is 6,2 miles long, meaning that we've also added a 10k and half-marathon race, we well. Our Camp is just outside Mendocino, who families who aren't running have access to that lovely community and the coast. After your run, enjoy more incredible food and drink while meeting fun folks. We have many other surprise treats in store for this festive event. Learn more at

Courses - Go Short or Go Long! - 6hr Relay JUST ADDED

The race course consists of a 6.2-mile loop from the Big River valley, to the top valley's edge. The loop is mostly signle track trail and has 1,150 feet of climb. You can choose from the two timed formats (6- and 12-hour) or the two distances, 10k and half-marathon. No matter the distance you'll be in for a treat, culminating in a one of a kind post run BBQ, beer, wine, campfire, and music from one of Scena Performance's house bands. Learn more about the course at


Ancient Redwood occupies and entire camp inside of Mendocino Woodlands Park. There are 20 tent cabins with cots in each. Enough for 4 people or more. No tent required. These are currently available for the entire weekend. As we get closer to the event, if there's room, we'll release tent cabins for single day reservations.

There is also tent camping. We will also make available up to 20 spots for people to camp in tents.

Words cannot describe how fun this will be. Camp assignments will be published May 1. Reserve your spot early as they will fill up!

If We Come, Will You Feed Us?

Ancient Redwood is setup in a family camp format, with a very large kitchen and eating area we refer to as The Commons. We serve coffee in the mornings and on race day, serve lunch and dinner. Each race entry includes one meal and you can purchase additional meals for yourself or for family members. In past years because of working off camp stoves and equipment, we've been a little limited in our menu but in our new camp area, we plan to serve different food for lunch and dinner and also to provide snacks. Watch this space for additions to the food and drink menu!
