Registration open! Come run the ancient trails of the Pomo people. You will go back in time as you witness the wonder of rugged coastline, sandstone cliffs, kelp-dotted coves, tide pools, pygmy forests and panoramic views. August along the coast normally makes for favorable weather for a fast run. These pristine and historic trails should be on every trail runner and ultra-marathoner's bucket list.

This event will now be two days to accommodate more runners.
Saturday: 50K, 26K, 15K, 9K
Sunday: 15K and 9K.

Some of you will run two days.We will cap this event at just 200 runners, combined for all distances per day to keep this a special and intimate experience.

In addition, to a fun-filled day and Pacific Coast Trail Runs unique vibe, you will enjoy World class aid stations, high energy volunteers, and the BBQ atmosphere at the finish line we are known for.

See below for additional park charge for those with two cars and one tent.Essentially, we can squeeze in a few more tents, but are being safe with 20 at this time.

Each additional ticket will be $10. Adult Beverages included.

Friday night, Race Director, Greg Lanctot will prepare his famous Tomato, Basil and Garlic sauce over angel hair pasta with all the fixings. This is the reason my wife married me, so she says ;-) Also, going to get my sister in law to make her linguini mac and cheese, my fav.
