Look! It's an actual Festival of Hills!
We are so excited to welcome a wild n’ wonderful new event to the Wonderland Running family of races: The Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills 6, 12, and 24 Hour Trail Races!!!!
Local time: 1:45 AM
Hills x N, where N = the number of hills.
Taking place on a stunningly beautiful 6,500-acre Coast Range wildscape preserve and farm animal sanctuary in Northern California, The Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills is truly like no other race you will ever run.
Nestled beneath Snow Mountain Wilderness and Mendocino National Forest, you will run through pristine wildscapes with ancient oaks, seldom-visited valleys, and vast, breathtaking views. The course features a 7½-mile loop with almost 2,000 feet of vert... because it’s a Festival of Hills!! Each loop begins and ends at a spacious, fully equipped hall with showers, restrooms, food, drink, and comfortable resting facilities.
The festivities before, during, and after the race will dazzle the senses and stir the soul. There will be costumes, light tunnels, music, fire dancers, and mysterious goings-on that can only be experienced, not explained.
Your registration includes unlimited camping, a full pre-race dinner, fully stocked aid stations, showers, delightful finishers awards, and other things that are, well... much harder to explain.
There will be cash prizes for the best costume, and the best mystery achievement. Oh, and there will also be cash prizes for the top three female and male finishers for each event!
We hope to see you this October in what promises to be one of the most beautiful, unique, festive, and memorable races you will ever run!
Ancestral lands of the Nomlaki and Patwin peoples.
