Dead Truck is back! The course has slightly changed and the start/finish area has been changed to the big parking lot behind the Cool Fire Dept! We now have much more space for parking right at the start/finish line! Due to permitting requirements, we’ve had to change what distances we … MORE

    This was a really awesome and well put together race. For any of you that have done Way Too Cool, it uses a bit of the back part of that course, but there is also some new trails that were just opened up. It starts (and finishes) at the Quarry Trail on Hwy 49. Goes up this trail until you get on the Wendell T Robie trail. There were four aid stations and all stocked full of everything you’d need. The volunteers were really awesome too. The aid stations were:
    Brown’s Bar 3.1 miles
    Green Gate 7.8 miles
    Green Gate 16 miles
    ALT 21 miles
    Goat Hill 26.5 miles
    I finished just a bit over 32 miles and just a tad under 5,000′ of gain.

    This was the first Dead Truck race, so there weren’t too many participants, but I imagine it will get bigger next year.

    Overall a very awesome race, course, and people. SS Mountain Racing did a great job with this, and I will absolutely be doing this race again.

    Sounds like a cool new course on some of the best trails in the country — and glad to hear they included Goat Hill (can't run on those trails and NOT tackle Goat Hill!). Well done Mike, and thanks for sharing! 👊 LESS

    Thanks Mike. Yeah, what would that part of CA be without Goat Hill! :)
