The Lake Hodges Trail Fest is an event that will have something for everyone, from the endurance crazed to the kids, we’ve got a distance for you. The Lake Hodges Trail Fest is a community-driven event and we are proud to be partnering with Outdoor Outreach as a fundraising recipient once again. All participants are able to create a fundraising page to raise money to help Outdoor Outreach and their fantastic programs.
The Lake Hodges 50K is ideal for all the distance junkies from those wanting to test their first Ultramarathon to those wanting to challenge themselves over a deceptively difficult course. The course is very friendly to those looking to make the jump from the marathon distance and the scenic, fast course will be appreciated by the Ultra veteran as well. In addition to a unique race medal and technical T-shirt, we’ll be giving away great schwag for everyone that takes part in the 50K distance.
For those with more modest aspirations and for family members looking to keep busy while your loved ones are running 30+ miles, we’ve got you covered too. The Hunt for Hodgee 15K and Hunt for Hodgee 5K are beautiful courses to try out your first trail race or conquer a new trail with a few hundred friends with great scenery. 5K and 15K participants will receive unique finishers medals and a technical race shirt.
Mom and Dad, don’t leave the kids at home, we’ve got a run just for them! The Kid’s 1 Mile Hodgee Hunt will be open to children 10 and younger. This will be a non-timed run and all the kids will receive a finisher’s medal.
