An event with pleny of ups and downs.

SLO Ultra Trail Run


There were three events: 5K, half marathon, and 50K. There was not much level ground on these courses, and finish times reflected the challenge. Nevertheless, early finishers made it look easy, and if you didn't know better you might think that it was. There were some fit people walking up the final hills. Unlike cycling, you don't get anything back on the descents. The activity was followed with a barbecue and bluegrass music.
