Trail Run

Rio Lindo Trail Run

Join us for a beautiful morning of running through the foothills of the Russian River. Trail runners will experience the beauty of the Rio Lindo Trail Run as they jog next to the Russian River, through apple orchards and mossy tree-lined forests. This inaugural event will let runners experience new trails on the private property of Rio Lindo Adventist Academy. Both the 5k and 10k courses will wind through the hills on campus with no significant climbs. Although there are no sustained climbs, the continuous use of single track and off road trails will be more than enough.

Course Details
Trail Run_3

The first ever Rio Lindo Trail Run, on April 2, will make you love running outdoors. This trail run is one of the most beautiful runs you do all year. Both the 5k and 10k courses feature brand new single track trails as well as 4×4 trails and fire roads. The elevation change from the highest point of the run to the lowest point of the run is only 200 feet. However, don’t let that fool you as some parts of the trail switch back up the 200 feet rather quickly. While on the trails, you will run along the Russian River, through apple orchards, through mossy wooded areas, including redwoods, and finally by small creeks and open fields of tall grass. This race has it all and is perfect for both the novice and experienced trail runner.
