THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Unfortunately we are not going to be able to hold this race as planned. I held out hope for a while and and as the Creek Fire ripped though the mountains just above the San Joaquin River Gorge (where the race takes place) this area was closed up until the beginning of November. Once it did reopen we still didn't have the approval of the another permitting agency to hold the race on the regular course.
As of today we are in the process of trying to obtain a permit for a very modified course and race format, but as this year has gone there is nothing concrete at this moment. The modified course will offer a 25k and 50k option only, with a strict capacity limit, and other covid precautions. When we have more info we will post it on www.SanJoaquinRunning.com and through our Facebook Page. We are tentatively shooting for a late December or early January 2021 date. Hopefully this will allow for us to still hold a fun and safe event and we hope some of you can make it out!
