Meat Grinder 50k, 30k, 1/2 Marathon, and 10k

Check back for race date!          

Come join us for a fantastic run along the historic Pioneer Express Trail during the 2nd annual Meat Grinder 50k! You will start and finish at the Rattlesnake Bar boat launch area in Loomis, CA. The river canyon views are stunning as you work your way from Rattlesnake, through the infamous Meat Grinder, and eventually get to your turn around spot at Beal's Point. Then, retrace your steps back to the finish line and get a 2nd opportunity to pass through the Meat Grinder! There will be 5 well stocked aid stations along the way with a myriad of food and drinks to keep you nourished and energized for your run! Sign up fast, our races have a history of selling out well before race day arrives! And, if you can't join the race fun, please consider giving back to the trail race community by volunteering!
