Ever Want to Run the Pacific Crest Trail?
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a storied trail that starts at the US/Mexico border and heads north through California, Oregon, and Washington states, ending at the US/Canada border, 2,652 miles later. Well known as an iconic through-hike destination, it is also an incredible trail for running. Here's your chance, to run the PCT, virtually.
There are four distance categories:
ENTIRE: 2,652 miles (averages 28.8 miles/day)
CALIFORNIA: 1,692 miles (18.4 miles/day)
OREGON: 455 miles (4.9 miles/day)
WASHINGTON: 506 (5.5 miles/day
Running can occur anytime between July 1 - September 30, 2021. You have three months to cover your distance. Break it up however you like.
Solo or Team
You can choose to run a distance solo, completing the miles on your own. Might be kind of hard for the Entire and California categories though (you can take that as a challenge if you are that kind of person).
Or, you can form a team of up to eight runners. Everyone on the team's mileage counts toward the category distance. This is a great way to tackle the Entire PCT or even California. You can form a team for any of the categories and make it more fun for you and your friends.
For a Team - the captain will register first, creating the team name and paying for just themself. Then the rest of the team can sign up and choose the team name from a drop-down list, paying for their own registration as part of that process.
The Pacific Crest Trail Association is the race beneficiary. We'll donate at least $3 per registration to the PCTA.
