Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in the annual Pacific Union College Angwin to Angwish trail run on October 30, 2016. This year, the event features a half marathon and 10k race, as well as the ever popular 4k fun run. Early bird registration is open until August 1, and special discounts are available for PUC alumni, faculty and staff, and students.

The Angwin to Angwish trail run was started in the 1970s and revived in 2013. Several hundred runners participated in the past few runs, and the race is expected to continue to grow. 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, on a rugged terrain that eventually leads to the infamous Angwish Hill.

Awards will be given to the top male and female winners for both the half marathon and 10k races. Additionally, awards will be given to the top three finishers for both races in various age groups, by gender. For the 4k run, awards will be given to the top three finishers for both male and female categories. All children aged 12 and younger will receive a medal upon completion of the 4k race. All ages are welcome to participate, and proceeds benefit PUC.

Race day registration will stay open for 30 minutes prior to each race, should same day registration be desired. The half marathon run begins at 9 a.m., the 10k run at 9:20 a.m., and the family (4k) at 9:30 a.m.
