Butte Meadows Trail-A-Thon Half & Full Marathon (with relay options) | Butte Meadows Trail-A-Thon Half & Full Marathons & Relay | Saturday, 14. October 2017

Join us in a heap load of running fun on Saturday, October 14th, at 8am, up in Lassen National Forest (about 45 minutes north of Chico, CA). The Butte Meadows Trail-A-Thon promises to be a great time! The BMT is on trail and fire roads with a nice technical aspect to some of it. Both distances lead you up to Colby Mountain Lookout, with spectacular views of Lassen and a 360 degree panorama of gorgeous scenery as far as the eye can see. Both the half and the full marathon courses utilize the last 13ish miles of our Loco Challenge 100k course. Bring your dog, bring a friend, run with family, just get out and run!

This event will directly benefit veteran's in Northern California. We will be choosing an exact beneficiary this week. Stay tuned.

All runners get a t-shirt, medallion and unlimited high fives!

Our local veteran's organization will be hosting a fundraiser BBQ at the finish line and Deer Creek Cafe will be hosting a pre race meal, at packet pick up in Forest Ranch, in their restaurant, on Friday 10/13/17.
