Another new event brought to you by Run 4 A Way, this 5k and 10k run will be run August 30th up in the cool air scented by the tall Sugar Pines.
Staged at Alta Sierra ski area, this dirt road course makes a convenient figure 8 allowing to offer both the 5k and 10k options without ever duplicating the scenic views. With typical triple digits scorching the arid landscape below, the Greenhorn Grunt & Grind offers a cool refreshing break with a 6600 foot elevation starting point. Considering the rugged landscape, the course is relatively flat and utilizes the old established logging roads with the occasional single track detour.
As with inaugural events, you get the opportunity to establish the records and be the first to make history. Additionally, our races tend to be a bit on the casual side with excellent opportunities to place in the awards.
If you are looking for a summer run and to beat the heat, come join us for the inaugural running of the Greenhorn Grunt and Grind. Stay tuned for more details and course profiles coming soon. We hope to see you up here in the cool mountain air.
Proceeds from this event will be going to Kern River Valley kids attending the Future Farmers of America National Conference. The kids are working hard to raise enough money to go!
