Race to Register for This Year's Lynch Canyon Trail Run and Community Hike

5K, 10K and Half Marathon expected to sell out during month of May

Runs and 2.5-mile community hike take place Sat. June 3 at 8 a.m.

Suisun City, Calif. – The 10th Annual Lynch Canyon Trail Run has earned a reputation as the perfect combination of challenge and fun, and the toughest trail run in Solano County. The 5K, 10K, and half marathon races all start at 8 a.m. on Sat. June 3. Over 300 runners have already signed up at www.lynchcanyontrailrun.org. These runners are coming from six different states and internationally, and they range in age from 8 to 80. Whether they are racing to win, running for fun, or both, they will be challenged on the steep hills and treated to frequent aid stations with cheerful volunteers. All routes are 100 percent trail, with about 85 percent wide track and 15 percent single track, and spectacular views.

The 5K, 10K, and half marathon runs are expected to sell out during the month of May, so pre-registration is encouraged now at www.lynchcanyontrailrun.org for $40, $60, or $70, respectively. All proceeds support public access and improvements at Lynch Canyon. Pre-registrants receive a custom-designed event t-shirt on race day. Half marathon finishers also receive a one-of-a-kind finisher’s medal.

The Community Hike also starts at 8 a.m. It is completely free and there is no pre-registration. Over fifty people hike the 2.5-mile loop as slow or fast as they like. They walk a wide dirt trail alongside a creek toward a reservoir, then go 400 feet uphill to reach the highest point of the hike. At the top, volunteers cheer them on and give them a certificate recognizing their achievement.

The runs and hike are a great way to celebrate National Trails Day and to start National Great Outdoors Month!

Participants arrive between 6:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. for check-in and are encouraged to carpool; parking is limited.

Bring family and friends, but no pets. For the protection of Lynch Canyon’s wildlife and free-range cattle, dogs and other pets are not allowed.
