The scenic trails, first class aid stations, impressive goody bags and prizes, and extraordinary volunteers make this an event you won’t want to miss. And, at NorCalUltras, we think everyone’s a winner! The Fall Classics feature awards and unique prizes for everyone - from race leaders to ultra-rookies and those who show tremendous spirit and support for their fellow trail runners.

After your run, kick back and enjoy the post race festivities with Joe's Cafe and our Smoldering Smores bar.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continued support and generosity. Through their contributions, we’re able to provide some of the best goody bags runners might ever receive - official race track bags, top-of-the-line Patagonia apparel - including a high-tech jacket for 50-mile finishers and commemorative 29th edition wine glasses. Thanks to Karen Hanke of PinkLime Design for the great logo designs and continued support.
