Our next race will be a little different so be sure and read the description closely before signing up. This one is about endurance rather than speed. The challenge will be as much mental as physical. But it will be a great time at a unique event that will stand out in your memory no matter how many races you’ve run.
Keep informed about all STR news and events by “liking” our Facebook page. We’ll also let you know there if one of our events is close to filling up so you don’t miss any of the fun!
I enjoy volunteering at races almost as much as I enjoy running them. If you’d like to volunteer at an STR event, email Mark. You can earn free entries to future races also!
The 4MPH Challenge. March 30-31. Can you run/walk an easy, gently rolling single-track trail loop in 90 minutes (15 minutes/mile)? Easy, right. OK, that’s one loop. When the 90 minutes are up, everyone heads out again together and does it (tries to do it) again. Yay! Two laps, three hours and 12 miles down And you’re tied for first place! Ready to do it again? And again, and … Hey, I’ll stay out there as long as you can keep up that blistering 15 minute/mile pace! As Yogi Berra would say, “90% of this race is half mental!” Register now before the price goes up (3 pricing options available).
The Me-OW! Marathons. Inspired by the legendary Barkley Marathons, only easier. How easy? Easy enough that almost any long-distance runner can enjoy a level of suffering previously unavailable to the masses! May 11-12 for advanced trail runners only. Click on the meow tab near the top of the page. STR is helping launch this event, but it probably will be administered separately so as not to ruin our reputation: There’s hard and there’s stupid hard. ’Nuf said?
June 22: Brandy Creek 5K, Monarch Mountain 10M and Brandy Creek Falls 30K. Races start at 7PM, you’ll need a flashlight for the 30K. Details coming soon. (Note: our plan is to alternate each year between three different sites for the summer evening races. And we still need a name. Any suggestions?)
November: Bohematosh Mt Marathon/ Dry Creek 15K/ Shasta Dam Mile. See the picture/header at the top of the page? That’s the place! (The Shasta Dam Mile will be our only non-trail event). In 2014 we hope to add (same day): The Sac River Trail Marathon and 50 Mile Ultramarathon.
January 1: Because Bohematosh had to be scheduled for fall, we have moved the Clikapudi Trail Runs to New Year’s Day. Same courses and distances as 11/10/12.
Bottom line: STR exists to encourage people to “Get Out And Get Moving!” We employ trail running events but whether you are walking, hiking, biking, paddling, or whatevering, just get out- into the great beautiful natural surroundings of the northstate, and get moving- fast, slow or in-between, as long as it’s under your own power! You’ll be glad you did!
