NorCalUltras works with many local community groups and clubs.
As runners, we put ourselves at risk nearly every time we lace up our shoes. From general trips and falls to predators and cars, we're well aware of the dangers around us when we go out for our runs. We know these dangers only multiply when we set out to run the trails or at night.
We've been hit by cars who don't see us, stalked by wild animals who prey on us, tripped up by objects we can't see, and even physically assaulted. Our loved ones and local law enforcement remind us of these dangers constantly, so much so that many runners often fear running at night. And yes, at times, it can seem scary and dangerous.
But we know that by following proper safety rules and running with others, we can enjoy the trails as safely at night as we can during the day. Indeed, running at night can be a whole new experience full of adventure, freedom and fun.
The Twilight Trail Adventure empowers runners to embrace running in the dark following common-sense rules, and to join a strong community of runners who want to take back the night! We aren't afraid to run in the dark. And we want others to come run with us too! Let's run safe and smart in the dark.
