Moonshine Trail | 3k, 5m, Half Marathon

June 2 @ 7:30 pm - 11:59 pm UTC+0

Where:

Brandy Creek Beach at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area

Race Details:

The 3K goes slightly uphill for the first half and downhill for the second and is a great introduction to trail racing for kids from 10 to 100 years old. 

 
The 5M heads uphill on Brandy Creek Trail for 2.5 miles, then makes a small loop and returns back down to the beach.  
 
The Half Marathon is the tough one- 3k ft elevation gain!:  Up the Brandy Creek trail and then over to Sheep Camp and up the steep Shasta Bally Road for a mile, then over to Papoose Pass for a fun, gentle 3 mile descent back to Sheep Camp (halfway point). Then you go up the Brandy Creek Falls trail for 1.5M, then gently down the 2M Rich Gulch trail and end up back down on the Brandy Creek Trail. (Summary: 4 miles up, 3 miles down, 2 miles up, 4 miles down). Carry a water bottle and a flashlight! 

A great opportunity to sample night running! Start in the light, finish at night!
