After 2020 (need we say more??), Let’s start 2021 Vacaville-Strong with a unique series - the 4 Peaks challenge! This multi-weekend challenge takes us along some of Vacaville’s most epic peaks: the cheesegrater, the Tower, Cantelow, and Gates-Mix canyon. 

In addition to experiencing the hills of Vacaville, the 4 peaks challenge will give back to the local community in a show of support after a tough last year. Each participant will receive a $50 gift card to a locally owned Vacaville business of your choice after completing the challenge.

Each event will be open for 1 week - complete the hike or run on the appropriate segment between Monday and Sunday of the event week, and upload your results to Strava and Strava will automatically log your result (fun prizes will be raffled off to those who complete the whole challenge). Don't have Strava?  No worries, you can email your distance/time to Scott@fleetfeetvacaville.com

As we anticipate continued need to practice social distancing over the next several months there will be no formal “race start times”, so pick your week or weekend day, pick your time and get out there - odds are good you’ll see fellow participants out there on the course as you run!
