Here are the courses from previous years. We might be tweaking them slightly, but elevation gain and terrain won't change much. Of course, we will be keeping Training Hill, aka K2, as part of the half marathon. ;)
Are you looking for a fun run for a great cause? If so, HoC 5k, 10k and half marathon is just what you are looking for! Proceeds from this race go directly back to youth of BOMUSD (Black Oak Mines Unified School District) to inspire their future success through agriculture, engineering and VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts). In addition, a percentage of the funds will also be used to scholarship a child to attend Camp Taylor, a camp specifically designed for youth with heart disease.
This is a family friendly event! You can enjoy the trail with your family or if you decide you want to participate in the event without your child, take advantage of our $8 per child - child care for children ages 4 and up! We will have a post race pancake breakfast.
The Heart of Cool Trail Run traverses some of the best trails Cool, CA and the Sierra Foothills have to offer. Run on the same trails as many of the famous local (and world renowned) events such as Western States 100 Mile, Way too Cool 50k, Rio Del Lago 100 Mile, and many more!
To reduce waste and the possibility of littering our trails, this will be a cup free event. Be sure to bring a cup or water bottle that can be refilled at aid stations.
We could still use volunteers for this event. If you are able to lend a hand during the race, or the day before, please fill out our online volunteer form.
