The Coastal Redwoods Trailfest is a 3 day trail-running festival which takes place in northern California with the coast and redwood groves. Festival HQ will be at Redwood Glen in Loma Mar, CA

Each day you will run a segment of trail which highlights the natural landscape. You’ll receive a time for each of the three trails that you run and will receive a cumulative time at the end of the festival on Saturday. We will award top finishers of each course back at HQ at the end of each day. Runners will be assigned a heat which will determine their shuttle pickup schedule from Trailfest headquarters. There are cutoffs. Runners must average a 20 minute mile to avoid being pulled from the course.

Scoring for the teams: At the end of each day teams will be scored two ways. First placement score (cross country scoring) as runners cross the finish line those who are competing for team placement will get points. First place will get 1 point, second will get 2, and so on.
