The folks at Pacific Coast Trail Runs (PCTR) have a reputation for putting on great events, but I have yet to experience one of these. However, that's about to change on Sept. 16th when I run my 4th ultra event (still feeling like a noob), the Big Basin Redwoods Trail Run 50K. I just sent in my application and payment today, and I am good to go. The PCTR events bill themselves as Runs that Aren't Races in Beautiful Places. With just a month before the Firetrails 50-Miler, I figure I can sneak this in my calendar and have one heck of a beautiful training run.
One of my OCTR buds, the Skipster, will be running Big Basin as his first ever ultra. Way to go, Skip! Other OCTR runners that are running here are Keira and Addy, who's also running her first 50-miler at Firetrails. Addy's dad, Kris will also be running at Big Basin in the 25K* distance. Woohoo!!

* I mistakenly put 21K for Kris. That's a bit difficult to do since that distance is not included as one of the events.
