New Year's Day Training Run
You've been asking for it, so it's back again by popular demand! We're stoked to get the band back together to ring in 2023 with a lot of vert and beautiful scenery!
Local time: 11:12 PM
The Broken Arrow Skyrace / Beer Bucket Run New Years Run...Presented by Salomon, will be held on January 1st at 9am. We will meet at the Mitchell Canyon Staging Area in Clayton.
As opposed to previous years, we are starting at 9 am (rather than 8 am) to avoid the long line at the gate (the park opens at 8 am) and inevitable late start to the run.
HOWEVER, there is limited parking so we encourage you to carpool, ARRIVE early, and bring $6 (cash) to pay for parking.
Getting there early also means that you will have a chance to try out the latest demo shoes from Salomon and poles from Leki.
Due to Covid, we've been unable to gather for training runs like these ... but there is no time like the (safe) present. These runs are an absolute blast with more than 150 intrepid souls joining us for a bracing run up Mount Diablo to celebrate the New Year!
As usual, we will have a super sweet raffle with goodies from our friend at Salomon, Garmin, Leki and Darn Tough Vermont Socks ...and lots of sweet Broken Arrow swag AND...wait for it...a FREE ENTRY INTO THE 2022 BROKEN ARROW SKYRACE (*excludes the 26k).
After the raffle, we will run up Mt. Diablo to start the year off right. Then we will enjoy post-run drinks and munchies and quality hang-time with our trail running community... safely and socially distanced!
As we always say, at The Broken Arrow Skyrace, we don't care if you finish first or last...YOU are a rockstar. Well, the same thing goes for our training runs.
Runners of all paces are absolutely welcome and we even have shorter routes for those who aren't up for the whole enchilada (about 15 miles).
So...we put it on your calendar peeps and let's do this!
This is a free event that does not necessarily require registration..... but if you would register it would be of a great help to us! Please bring your friends!
