Here’s a quick plug for the Chico Running Club’s third annual trail half marathon: the Hot Half. It takes place this year on Sunday, 4 October.
It’s a well-organized dirt run that offers a scenic and challenging way to “tour” upper Bidwell Park.
The “Hot” part of the name is in fact an acronym, standing for Hooker Oak Trail, because the entire run takes place on trails including Middle Trail and Yahi Trail.
Wade Desrosier has won the men’s division in both of the first two years while Liz Gilman won last year in the women’s division.
Will they run again to defend their titles?
