On the first Saturday of June, trail runners gather to test themselves on Lynch Canyon's terrain. Runners experience outstanding views of undulating open space, the Napa Valley, San Francisco Bay, Mt. Tamalpais, and Mt. Diablo. Drawing participants from all around Northern California and beyond, this top notch event has earned a reputation for being the perfect combination of "challenge & fun".
Enjoyed by runners from 8 to 80 years old, and first-timers to sponsored athletes, the Lynch Canyon Trail Run has something for everyone. While trail run distances are challenging with a respectable amount of elevation gain, participants are treated to frequent aid stations and cheerful volunteers. The event also includes a free 2.5 mile community hike to encourage everyone to participate and enjoy some of the great outdoor recreation that Solano County has to offer.
Event proceeds benefit The Solano Land Trust, a non-profit organization that preserves and protects open space in Solano County.

The Lynch Canyon Trail Run Scholarship:
Our trail run scholarship was inspired by Jim Dobyns, a local school teacher who registers himself and two other people he doesn't even know! You'll have an opportunity to do the same. During on-line registration you can purchase (optional) a $25 scholarship that registers a youth that otherwise wouldn't run. You'll be giving someone a chance to participate in this wonderfully organized event and share the joy of trail running.
As Always -- Our Community Hike Is Free:
The community hike is FREE! In the spirit of encouraging healthy living, anyone signing an event waiver can do the community hike for free. Just signup at the race day registration table and join us for some fun in the outdoors!

Course Maps & Elevation Profiles

This event is produced by a volunteer organizing committee, supported by generous sponsors and delivered by 50+ volunteers and hundreds of participants on race day. All proceeds for this event go directly to The Solano Land Trust, a non-profit dedicated to preserving open space in Solano County.
No transfers and/or refunds for non participation. Instead, your race fee will be converted to a charitable contribution and you can request a receipt for tax purposes from the Solano Land Trust.
Bring the family...but leave the pets behind...they are not allowed at Lynch Canyon. Traditional strollers will not work well on this off-road course, however, large wheeled jogger/running style strollers will work on the community hike course (all other courses involve single-track and using a jogging stroller would be dangerous)
