Route information
Terrain: Closed Road
Elevation, -700m, Flat
This panoramic course begins in the heart of the Sierras at Cressman's General store and twists down on Auberry Road.
With runners sticking to this closed road throughout, they can relax and take in their beautiful surroundings, with woodland flanking them throughout the majority of the course.
Runners will stretch out past Alder Springs before taking in panoramic views of Meadow Lakes at the 10k mark. Participants can also observe the tragic devastation of the 2020 Creek Fire, a poignant reminder of nature's power.
With a 700m elevation drop, this twisting and beautiful course is as fast as they come, runners should be well placed to smash some PBs by the time they reach the finish line at Auberry.
