8:00 AM

SOLANO LAND TRUST, SOLANO COUNTY PARKS, BAY AREA RIDGE TRAIL —  Lynch Canyon
The 11th 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 2. Whether you are racing to win, running for fun, or both, you 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 we encourage pre-registration now online. 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. About fifty people usually hike the 2.5-mile loop as slow or fast as they like. If you join, you will 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 you on and give you a certificate recognizing your achievement.
