Participants will experience some of the most scenic and challenging sections of the iconic Western States Trail as they cover up to 15,000’ through the Canyons between Devil’s Thumb and the famous river crossing at Rucky Chucky. Your limits will be tested and your finish will be hard fought as this is the most rugged and difficult sections of the Western States Trail.

Along the trail, runners will behold panoramic Sierra vistas, descending into intimate canyon gullies filled with vibrant ferns and fauna, gazing up into lush canopies of Oak and Pine. You’ll dip your toes into the rushing waters of the historic American River, crossing mountain streams and old wooden bridges through historic settlements from California’s gold rush days. You might even hear an echo of old prospectors and mules on their quest for the mother lode as you follow the same trail they did over 150 years ago.

The Canyons Endurance Runs will feature three distances: a 100K, 50k and a 25K. The 25K is a fundraiser for the Foresthill Schools athletic programs and for maintenance of the Western States Trail. Contact: [email protected]
