First Year of the Event: 1991

Description: This course is nestled in the Sierra foothills near Meadow Vista on the Sugar Pine Mountain Trail. The Sugar Pine Mountain Trail is a beautiful 6.6 miles with an immense variety of topography ranging from gently rolling hills to three steep hills. The race course has been set up to be 100% trail except the first and last 200 meters. Quote: "This course is my favorite training run. Think of it like a 10K on steroids. Clearly brutal if you race it, but pleasant and remarkably scenic if you take your time." --Dr. Gordy Ainsleigh DC, age 64, Founder of the Western States 100-Mile Run
