    The Sizzlin’ Sasquatch is the creation of RJ and Summer Chiles, who own the land where the course is located and direct the race single-handedly. You can tell that they really care about this race, as there were bigfoot signs directing participants off of the main highway, all the way to the starting line, and many other amenities not often found at trail races. I was surprised at the small number of participants, but the quality made up for the small quantity. At 5:00 a.m., five or six enthusiastic runners took off for a short out and back before beginning a series of loops approximately 3.2 miles long. I fell in behind two female runners and found that it was a little dusty. I tried slowing down to get out of their dust, but it didn’t seem to settle very quickly, so I continued on behind them. After about a loop and a half, they both pulled away from me and the dust was no longer a problem. The trail was mainly hard packed to loose dirt when we were under the oak trees, but consisted of about a 10-foot swath of closely mowed pasture out in the open. I would say that about 40% of the course was covered by trees, which provided welcome shade. The course was relatively flat, with short rollers. There were a couple of places that were really rocky, but the whole course was runnable. There was one full-service aid station at the start/finish line and self-service water stations a little past one mile and a second near the 2-mile mark. There were humorous signs along part of the course, as well as a life-sized Sasquatch silhouette. The resident Llama, as well as wildlife such as tarantula hawks, a velvet ant (cow killer), and a huge rat snake kept me entertained.

    The generous hosts provided free camping for the 3-days of races, and even had a pair of private outdoor showers for the runners. All in all, this was one of the best organized small races that I’ve ever had the pleasure of running. It’s a shame that there weren’t more runners to take advantage of it.
