Are You Up for the Challenge?
If you're looking for a boring, predictable trail race, look elsewhere. The Loco Challenge is for those who want a real adventure, complete with questionable weather, unique terrain, a well marked course, and a whole lot of "fun".
Welcome to Butte Meadows, California, the tiny mountain town with a population of 40 (or less). Home to the Loco Challenge and the Bambi Inn, the infamous local bar, where locals and tourists alike can get a burger, fries and an ice-cold beer while enjoying the slow pace of mountain life.
With 5 distances to choose from, the Loco Challenge has something for everyone - whether you're looking to run, walk, or crawl (hey, we don't judge) your way to the finish line of the 5KBEER5K, PR on the 10k, or take on the adventurous, and sometimes even Loco "no track", Half Marathon, 50k, 100k, or 100-miler, you are in for a real...treat.
A mouthwatering, ooey gooey grilled cheese breakfast Sammie will be waiting for you when you finish your race. Hang out with other runners as you cheer on those crossing the finish line and enjoy your post-race breakfast (or lunch), included in your registration.
All runners get a sweet haul of Loco swag and a medallion. 100k runners who complete their distance receive a gorgeous leather belt*. 100-mile runners who complete their distance, receive a Loco buckle.
Runners and their family & friends can camp very close to the start/finish line at Cherry Hill or Butte Meadows Campgrounds or rent a cabin in the area. Info on lodging can be found on our lodging page.
Let's not forget about our furry friends. We welcome your non-aggressive, well-trained pups and know they will be on their best behavior. After all, what's a good adventure without a good companion? Please remember to bring Rover's leash for the start/finish line and poop bags (nobody wants to wear dog duty on their shoes while running Loco). Recommended for distances half marathon and below.
We can't promise this race won't suck (it was almost named the "Suck It" race, afterall), but we can promise you a unique, affordable experience, full of nature, phuckery and some of the best times out on the trails you'll have all season!
Join us for an unforgettable adventure at the Loco Challenge, June 1st, in Butte Meadows!!
