On October 26, runners of all ages and abilities will enjoy the fun and challenge of Angwin to Angwish, Pacific Union College’s annual trail run in the heart of the Napa Valley. All are welcome to the revival of this popular event, with courses at the Family(4k), 12k, and 24k distances, all of which run through the beautiful scenery of the Las Posadas forest.

Last year saw the revival of the Angwin to Angwish Trail Run, which started in the 1970s and continued for decades after. Over two hundred runners enjoyed the event last year. Again in 2014, the course will take place on smooth to medium-rough trails and service roads with double and single track. A challenging run over hills, the run includes intense climbs (1,000 feet vertical) at the longer distances.

It is still not too late to register for the October 26 event, which has no limit to the amount of runners able to participate. Race day registration will stay open for 30 minutes prior to each race, should same day registration be desired. The 24k run begins at 9 a.m., the 12k at 9:20 a.m., and the Family(4k) at 9:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the trail run benefit the Student Association and Service-Learning programs of Pacific Union College, in their effort to make a difference in neighboring communities. Past benefits of student efforts include the Napa Valley Food Bank, Napa Valley Land Trust, and Rebuilding Calistoga.
