RACE INFO

The Golden State 50K/35K/Half Marathon/10K is our newest, premier summer event, traversing the fabulous trails of Fort Ord National Monument. Each course is newly designed, and different than our winter time Fort Ord Trail Runs, including new trails and more single-track running! Fort Ord National Monument has a vast array of endangered and rare species of plants and animals, some of which are rarely found outside of its boundaries. The botany on this terrain is just as diverse as the animals that roam it. Fort Ord has vegetation ranging from maritime chaparral to grasslands, marshes and gorgeous fields of flowers. The Golden State courses provide a grand tour of Fort Ord and all this former military base has to offer.

Fort Ord National Monument is truly golden in the summer. Runners will be treated to rolling hills, vast fields of wildflowers, and varied terrain, including smooth single-track, sandy hills, and exposed fire roads.

Aid Stations

Inside Trail Racing aid stations are replete with an optimal variety of glycogen-replenishing, electrolyte-replacing products. The following is a list of some of the foods and beverages each aid station may provide: Gu Energy gels and chews, all-natural nutrition bars from Larabar, trail mix, pretzels, potato chips, Oreo cookies, Pop Tarts, boiled potatoes with salt, Coke, Mountain Dew, Ginger Ale, water, Tailwind Endurance Fuel, PB&J sandwiches, M&M’s, Mike & Ike’s, salt tablets, and tangerines. Aid stations are also equipped with general first aid items but no anti-inflammatory medicine. As distances between aid station vary, we strongly encourage all runners to carry at least one 20oz bottle during their run.

Tailwind is mixed so that it contains 180 – 200 calories per 20 fluid ounces.


 
VOLUNTEER

Without the support of enthusiastic and caring volunteers producing our races would not be possible. Volunteers of all ages and abilities help with setup, check-in, aid stations, course marshaling, timing, and post-race food.

Volunteering is a fun, novel way to experience races, play in the outdoors, and spend time with friendly people. All volunteers receive a free race T-shirt, free food, and the ability to earn credit toward a future Inside Trail Racing event, commensurate to the amount of time worked. Five hours of assisting an event results in a free race credit or Inside Trail merchandise.

To volunteer for this year’s event, please submit our online volunteer form.
