McCall Trailrunning Classic 2017- McCall
July 14, 2017at3:00 pm - July 15, 2017at8:30 pmFree
When the word “Classic” is used there are two definitions that come to mind:
- Something judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality of its kind.
- Remarkably and instructively quintessential.
The McCall Trailrunning Classic fits into the second definition. It’s a showcase of what makes McCall, Idaho one of the most beautiful places on the planet as well as a great place to have adventures in the great outdoors. In its sixth year this race is a perfect beginner’s introduction into the more formidable IMTUF 100 that happens later in the year. With big views, high altitude peaks and legendary singletrack this should be a race that’s on your schedule!

Do the Louie Lake Loop to Boulder Lakes Aid Station (same location as 2014). Climb to Shaw Twin, but the Aid Station there is now an unmanned water station (only 3 mi from last station at Boulder).
