Eight Events to Choose From 5k to 100K Ultra Marathon!

The¬†eight Birkie Trail Run, Relay and Trek events feature the best sections of the famous Birkie Trail and single-track sections of the CAMBA trail system. This an event that is perfect for runners looking to break free from the roads, it is a great crossover and introduction to trail running. The Birkie Trail has a wide, grass covered, level surface, and the single-track is smooth and fast. But don’t make any mistake, this is a 100% trail race, with the famous Birkie hills, making for a challenging race for even veteran trail runners. Hammer it or cover your favorite distance at a recreational pace. Either way, this event has a great, friendly vibe and a finish-line party with local food and craft beer on tap from the Cabin Stop of Hayward. If you love to run on a great trail, this is the event to put on your calendar NOW. See you in October!
