The 2023 race is sold-out!
Come to climb the Woodmonster with us next year!
The Woodmonster race is one of the favorite races among our runners! It is located in Redwood Regional Park at the Canyon Meadow staging area. The race starts and finishes at the Owl Picnic Area.
Since the field is limited to 115 runners because of parking restrictions, we are keeping it simple, celebrating our unique Woodmonster course and the Woodmonster hill challenge. If you can not race, please consider volunteering. We will need help marking the course, pre-running, checking-in, monitoring the course, and sweeping the course.
We will host several previews of the course with LMJS Sunday Trail runs and the Wednesday night Transports trail runs. We will keep you updated on those events through the Woodmonster Trail Race facebook group: Woodmonster Facebook
