Loaded with historic trails, the Weaver Basin 50K trail ultra-marathon offers a challenging course of mostly single-track with only 200 yards of pavement, less than 5 miles of dirt road, and over 4,000 ft of climbing. Explore our mining trails in the heart of California's Trinity Alps, a remote and rugged part of Northern California.
The Weaver Basin trails will take you through oak, douglas fir, and pine forests across multiple creeks, and over ridges with incredible views from Mt Shasta to Shasta Bally. The mining history is everywhere on our trails as you run along hydraulic mining ditches, through the rock piles left by chinese miners, drainages and hillsides washed away over a hundred years ago.
You can expect 5 well stocked aid stations and the choice of three distances(50k, 30k, and 10k).
Participants in the 50k and 30k will receive a t-shirt with their entry and a finisher award. T-shirts will also be available for purchase.
Proceeds, after the race costs, go to support the Trinity High School Athletics Booster Club
