Shasta Dam

Race Details:

 

The Sac River Trail Marathon takes you from Shasta Dam to the Sundial Bridge via single track trails. It is fast and scenic, with 800′ net elevation loss, no hills of significance! 1 mile on the dam, 21 plus miles single track dirt, and the last 4 on a paved bike path.

The 55K Ultramarathon will take you across the Dam over to Dry Creek Trail that hugs the brim of Shasta Lake and brings you back to the dam.  From there you will make your way onto the Marathon Course and take the trails along the river until you reach the Sundial Bridge where the finish line awaits.  

The 50 Mile will give you the best of all 3 worlds.  Not only do you get to experience the epic trails on the 55k/Marathon Course but you get to conquer Bohemotash Mountain!  You will gain the best views in the area as you look out on Shasta Lake, Dam and amazing views of Mt Shasta in the distance.  

*There will be a shuttle at the Finish Line (Sundial Bridge) that you can park your car and take to the Start Line (Shasta Dam).  You may purchase your shuttle pass during checkout on UltraSignup
