Trail racing in the Bay Area for July 2014

July is full of racing, both in the woods and on the streets. Many of the cities around the Bay Area are holding Fourth of July races. Santa Cruz is the only city I know of that utilizes the trails for their Independence day race. Big Events are taking place all over the state like the Badwater Ultramarathon down in Death Valley and the Tahoe Rim Trail up in the Sierras. Western States 100 was at the end of June up there too. Right here at home we have the mega popular San Francisco Marathon. Out on the trails of the Bay Area we have 12 different races to choose from. For me and the Ultra Half Series there is the Bad Bass in late July. Whatever floats your boat in the running world, it's available in July. Enjoy It!
