The Fall Classics!
Welcome to the 34th Annual Dick Collins Firetrails 50.
All of us at NorCalUltras are excited and honored to continue the Firetrails tradition for years to come. Thank you, Carl and Ann, for lighting the way!
I invite you to read about ultra running legend Dick Collins and you'll see these amazing facts on display at Joe's Cafe at the finish area.
The scenic trails, first class aid stations, impressive goody bags and prizes, and extraordinary volunteers make this an event you won’t want to miss. And, at NorCalUltras, we think everyone’s a winner! The Fall Classics feature awards and unique prizes for everyone- from race leaders to ultra-rookies and those who show tremendous spirit and support for their fellow trail runners.
Please note the changes to the course: Due to park construction, the course will turn around at Quarry instead of Lone Oak. In addition, the route from Clyde Woolridge Staging Area is now longer to the finish. Please be sure to look at the Aid Station (with Pace Chart) page.
After your run, kick back and enjoy the post race festivities with Joe's Cafe, Homemade Vegan Soup from Ultra Runner Chef Tim Ruffino and our Divine Dessert bar featuring assorted baked goods.
A special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continued support and generosity. Through their contributions, we’re able to provide some of the best goody bags runners might ever receive - official race track bags, top-of-the-line race apparel - including a high-tech jacket for 50-mile finishers and commemorative 34th edition wine glasses. Thanks to Karen Hanke of PinkLime Design for the great logo designs and continued support.
Please take a moment to say "thank you" to all of our volunteers and team, for without them, these events could not happen.
Thank you for choosing Dick Collin’s Firetrails 50 as your fall classic. We look forward to seeing you on October 8th!
Enjoy the journey,
