Gary Gellin and I are pleased to announce the Boggs Mountain Trail Races, featuring a 25k and a 50k, which will take place October 30, 2010!
We checked out Boggs Mountain last month and liked what we saw. The forest is located two hours north of San Francisco, situated on a high ridge between the legendary vineyards of Napa Valley and Clear Lake. It contains a plethora of single track trails winding through pine forest that will sure to delight all trail runners. Boggs is relatively unknown in trail and ultra running circles and this will be the first time a trail race has been held at this venue, which is quite surprising considering how awesome these trails are. No joke, this place is like Disneyland for trail runners! We are excited to share these wonderful trails with other trail runners.
We want to make this a must-do event on the calendar. We have designed a preliminary website with general information, including details about the course and free open camping on site (we encourage camping the night before and after the event). The race will feature expertly designed courses, separate starts for the 25k and 50k, meticulous route marking, minimal congestion and traffic on the course, and over 90%+ single track. All participants will be treated to a post-race catered picnic with a wholesome meal and deserts. We are also looking into other fun options for post-race festivities. In addition, since the event will take place the day before Halloween we hope to incorporate some Halloween themes. We hope to open up registration soon so check back here and the Boggs website for more information!
