WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
The Blood Sweat and Beers Trail Run is nestled in the American River Canyon. The course has rocks, roots (to keep you on your toes or on your face), lot’s of dirt, hills, and wildlife. Both the Long Course (10.5 Miles) and Short Course (5.9 Miles) are a challenging mix of single track trail, a cool canal system, unimproved dirt roads with just a hint of paved roads to keep things interesting. So leave your pretty racing flats at home and accept the challenge to have some dirty fun!
All aid stations will be stocked with water and nuun electrolyte drink.
Mile 3.8 Last Gasp
Mile 5.2 (A cut-off is enforced here for the Long Course runners. All Long Course runners must leave this aid station by 9:40 am.) Runners from the long course that do not make the cut-off (20 min./mi. pace will be turned at the electrical tower by a race official toward the finish line.) If a participant is turned here they will complete 5.9 miles rather than 10.5 miles.
Mile 7.49 Robie Point
