An awesome trail race on the beautiful Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail. Known for its vibrant wildflowers, specimen flowers along the trail will be labeled with small flags the week of April 1 from the Lower Log Boom to Patti’s Point (the Longest Mile).
The out-and-back course runs along the Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail and winds along the Mokelumne River past California’s historic mining towns and old mines. Drink in the beautiful scenic views of Camanche and Pardee Lakes, oak woodlands, gorgeous wildflowers, the “Longest Mile Trail,” and wildlife that often includes the majestic Bald Eagle.
Please be aware that between the climbing and the possible/probable heat that the 50M course is not an easy race. Proper training is highly recommended. The 50 mile race has approximately 10,000 feet of climb.
Many thanks to the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) for their assistance, as well as their custodianship of the Mokelumne River Coast to Crest Trail and the watershed lands.
