Mendocino County’s first ultra marathon, the Mendocino Ultra 50K is a breathtaking trail run starting and ending at the Big River State Park just south of Mendocino Village. The race takes runners along the rugged coast, up Russian Gulch and east through the forest, finally delivering them to the home stretch–about 10 miles along the majestic Big River.
8.5 hours (7:30 am – 4 pm)
Crew/pacers: No crew or pacers allowed.
Drop bags: Please bring a clearly marked drop bag to the starting area. There will be a marked location to place your bag. The drop off place is TBD but will be approximately at the 15 mile mark.
Hang out after the race for delicious beer, food, and great music! Menu features incredible food from Stanford Inn’s Ravens Restaurant, including a falafel bar, whole plant-based sushi, veggie soup, and more, plus Mendocino County’s own craft beer!
