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.
Inside Trail Racing is authorized to use the trails on Fort Ord National Monument under a Special Recreation Permit issued by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
