Western States offers four training runs to acquaint runners with the last 70 miles of the trail.
Registration for the first 20-mile training run is open and closes Wed, Feb 13 @ 11:59 PM. Space is limited. Cost includes bus ride to start, "ID" bracelet and access to aid stations.
You will meet at Placer HS and leave by bus for the Green Gate at the end of Sliger Mine Road (50-minute ride.) This is close to the river crossing at Rucky Chucky. From there you'll run to the finish in Auburn, approximately 20 miles. This will familiarize runners with a section of trail that WS entrants will be running at night.
These training runs are ALOT of fun, and you do NOT need to be a WS Entrant to participate.
