Saturday, September 1, 2018. Join us for an epic week of trail running, live music, BBQ and more!

Don't be fooled by our sexy logo or live bluegrass music, fresh hometown BBQ, ice cold beer and great race swag. This race will take you over wild undiscovered territories along the majestic California coastline where it's rough, it's rugged, and it's dirty. In private Wild Cherry Canyon you will have to dig deep to earn that sweet medal and hot cherry pie.

"Join me and combine your passion for running with work to protect the places you play. Give the miles that your legs cover greater meaning." - Krissy Moehl

Oak woodlands, rolling hills, lonely single track trail and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Do yourself a favor, register for the SLO Ultra Wild Cherry Canyon Trail Run....you deserve it." - Luis Escobar

Races

  • 50Mile Ultra

    Our 50 Mile Ultra is not for the faint of heart or quads. It is LEGIT. You will enjoy the Half & Marathon courses, but then head deep north into the uncharted rugged ranges of the private Land Conservancy and PG&E properties. The hilly miles consist mainly of 3 large unique clover loops as well as 3 out and back sections. This 50 Mile race is NOT for beginners or walkers and without a doubt requires a combination of running and hiking in order to finish in the 15 hour cut off time allowed. However, it CAN be your first ULTRA with some quality training and our generous support. Do NOT be intimidated - but do get yourself trained. Learn more...
