WHO’S READY FOR A PARTY IN THE DESERT?
Elder Creek Night Runs is back for 2023! Come experience a few of our favorite things – a desert sunset, some windy single track surrounded by red shank and manzanita trees, and a run with all our friends under the stars.
The 4.6 mile looped course is a mix of single track trail and wide open dirt road. You will hit an aid station after every loop, as well as pass your parked car. Sunset is at 7:55 p.m and then it’s ALL fun and games through the desert on the super fun trails to the finish. All runners will receive a finishers medal, a sticker, and a commemorative shirt.
50K: 7 Loops
30K: 4 Loops
1/2 Marathon: 3 Loops
9 Miler: 2 Loops
We’re thankful for …
CAHUILLA BAND OF INDIANS
The Cahuilla Band of Indians is Mountain Cahuilla (Qawishpa Cahuillangnah), one of the original peoples of Southern California. The Mountain Cahuilla have lived in the high mountain valleys and canyons, running up from the Coachella Valley, San Gorgonio Pass, and San Jacinto Mountains region of Southern California since time immemorial. Cahuilla history in stories and songs tells how the Cahuilla were given these lands as their homeland since the beginning of time by their Creator. The Cahuilla reservation of approximately 20,000 acres of Trust Land was established in 1875 and is located near Anza, California in what is now western Riverside County. We thank tribal council chairman Daniel Salgado for the opportunity. We are extremely honored to be permitted to have a race on this land.
Elder Creek Night Runs is woman-founded, and woman run.
