Tag Archives: Trail Race
Western States is more than a weekend; it’s more than an historic and iconic 100-mile race. It is an aspiration, a life long goal, a crazy and irrational thought, or to the 400 hundred plus runners a reality. Every June people flock to Squaw Valley and are greeted by the typical camaraderie, support of family/friends/volunteers, beautiful scenery, and nervous excitement that are par for the course with most Ultra Distance Trail Races.
This past weekend was the San Diego 100, a 100 mile trail race through the Cleveland National Forest in East County San Diego. The SD100 is proving itself year after year, largely in part to the amazing RD Scotty Mills, dedicated/enthusiastic/awesome volunteers, and a field of runners that continually impress and inspire. Besides Injinji being a presenting sponsor of the race, we have vested interest in the event due to our personal relationships with all the people involved and the beautiful SoCal location. We have done everything from trail markings to photo-shoots in the Cleveland Forest, and truly find any excuse to get out there. Quite frankly if RD Scotty Mills decided he wanted to hold a tandem stationary bike race, we would jump at the opportunity to be involved.
