Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a pre-race packet pickup?
I am new to trail running, will I get lost?
The trails are thoroughly marked with ribbons, and each turn will have multiple ribbons along with a sign pointing you in the direction of the turn. There will be no areas where you need to guess. We haven't lost anyone yet!
Are there finisher awards?
While we do offer a hearty congratulations, along with various race swag, we strive to emphasize the experience over the medals, and thus devote more energy toward the things that will make the race one to remember, including an elaborate post-run bbq and beer extravaganza where you can connect with your fellow finishers. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female finishers and the top male and female age group finishers in 10-yr increments.
Are there things for my family to do at this location?
Bothe-Napa is a great place to bring the entire family. The event is staged near the State Park swimming pool ($6 fee), and the start/finish is located in a shady picnic area where family members can relax under the cool cover of trees, hike along the sun-dappled creek trails, and take part in the post-race festivities. Wineries abound near the park, and downtown Calistoga is just minutes away, offering many hot springs, spa, and restaurant choices.
Can I hike the event?
Yes, we believe everyone should get a chance to experience these beautiful trails, regardless of pace.
Do you need volunteers?
Our races depend on the generous spirit of the running community to ensure every participant is well supported. Volunteers will receive a free entry to a future Scena Performance event. Please fill out the volunteer form for more information.
