Forest Ranch Four

4m * 15k * Half Marathon * 50k

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

All Distances: 8:00AM

Join us for the first foot race to ever go through

Forest Ranch, Ca (just a 20ish minute drive from Chico)!

Run along the west branch of Little Chico Creek and past the old mining areas that pulled out some of the counties' largest nuggets during the gold rush.

 

Enjoy wide, dirt trails that allow you to run uncongested and chat with friends or take the lead and relish

in wide open spaces. 

 

Take in stunning views of Carpenter and Thatcher Ridges and breathe in crisp, clean, fresh air. During your run, you will be surrounded by the forest, spring wildflowers and bright green moss covered rocks.

Like all Intrepid Adventures races,

the Forest Ranch Four is dog friendly and family friendly. Walkers and hikers are invited to join us

on the 4 mile distance, through the woods.

 

If you are running the 50k, your forest adventure will take you up to Butte Meadows, to the infamous Bambi Inn (of the Loco race series and BMT).

 

This is going to be a fun, challenging and absolutely gorgeous race. Put it on your Spring calendar now because there is a 200 participant cap on this race!
