Description: Join Us In Mendocino! Come visit the gorgeous Anderson Valley and run along rolling trails amongst cathedral-like groves of 1,200-year-old redwoods in Mendocino County’s hidden gem, Hendy Woods State Park. A full weekend of fun awaits runners of all distances, along with plenty of activities for the entire family. After your run, enjoy more incredible food and drink while meeting fun folks, soaking in the nearby river, listening to music, and sipping on local wine. We have many other surprise treats in store for this festive event. Courses: The race course consists of a 5-mile loop following nearly every trail in the park. Runners will be directed through both the Big and Little Hendy Groves of old growth redwoods and past the historic Hermit Huts before checking in at the Start/Finish aid station. Choose the 5 or 10 mile fun runs, or test yourself with our timed event format for 6 or 12 hours. No matter the distance you’ll be in for a treat, culminating in a one of a kind post run BBQ, beer, wine, campfire, and music from Scena’s house band ‘Voodoo Switch’ to bring the house down. Staying Here: The Ancient Redwood Running Festival’s race central will be located in the Wildcat Campground where runners, friends, and families have the opportunity to reserve a campsite and participate in a lively welcome feast. Book a spot for up to 8 friends to camp in the Wildcat Campground. Sites are spread out enough to enable some privacy while being centralized to the hub of action at the Start/Finish area. Grab a campsite and immerse yourself in the community of runners and share in the experience. Reserve your spot early as they will fill up!
