Headwaters Trail Runs are 50k, 30k, and 10k trail running events held in the Klamath Mountains west of Mount Shasta City, CA. These three scenic trail runs are named after the headwaters of the Sacramento River.
The 50k and 30k races are scenic, mountainous loop courses. They are run entirely on single-track trails and dirt forest roads that wind up, down, around, and through the rugged mountains that claim host to the crystal-clear headwaters of California’s longest river. The 10k race is a flat, fast loop on the lake trail that circles the forested shores of picturesque Lake Siskiyou.
The magnificent backdrop for both runs is the majestic Mt. Shasta (14,179′ elev.), the most massive of all the Cascade volcanoes. Runners are rewarded with clean mountain air, challenging terrain, welcoming aid stations, and an enthusiastic volunteer staff.
The 50k, 30k, and 10k races meet or exceed the event criteria set forth by the American Trail Running Association’s (ATRA) Events Standards Program. For more information click the ATRA link below. For more information about betting sites in the UK click here.
