A significant role of the Western States Trail Foundation (WSTF) is preservation of the historic Western States Trail from Lake Tahoe to Auburn, California. In partnership with the Tahoe National Forest, California State Department of Parks and Recreation and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, WSTF volunteers annually contribute in excess of 2000 hours towards maintenance and upkeep of the Western States Trail. The WSTF in excess of $50k annually towards trail maintenance projects.
Please join us on September 28th, 2013, for the WSTF Trail Fund Run. Endorsed by the Western States Run, this event will help the WSTF fund the much needed projects to ensure a safe and sustainable trail for Hikers, Runners and Equestrians alike.
All three distances will be run over a combination of Trails and Park access roads. The 10k and 10 mile distances are moderately challenging courses. The 5k distance does not have the elevation gains and losses, and is more suited to walkers, hikers and young children.
