Race Preview: 2018 South Slough Trail ‘n Treat (Charleston)

I had to doublecheck the date of the South Slough Trail ‘n Treat when writing this preview, as the name was reminiscent of an October or Halloween-themed event. It’s actually taking place on July 14th in Charleston (near Coos Bay), but the treat (aside from the Rice Krispie Treat reward at the end) comes from the uniquely diverse running areas.

Runners will navigate trails, hills (with 300 feet of gain, and boardwalks, as well as run through tidal flats, water channels, and marshes. While this may sound like an opportunity to get lost, it actually takes place in the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve Interpretive Center and is sure to be well-marked and manned. There will also be a short kid’s race (1/4 mile) and top-three finishers in each gender will win patches from the South Slough. Everyone will get a medal as well.
