Napa Valley's ultra! Runs across the Palisades Trail above Calistoga to the top of Mount St. Helena. Don't let the name fool you -- you'll be mostly looking down at the Napa Valley. This is a tough run on trails mostly run only by the locals. 

Join us in Calistoga for the Napa Valley 50k, in glorious Robert Louis Stevenson State Park. Don’t let the name fool you — this is a challenging race that rollicks across the Palisades on rarely run trails, not a day at the spa.

Your race will take you out and along the Palisades all the way to Mount St. Helena. Along the way, you’ll find mystical trail features such as the Maze with its Nautilus centerpiece. Come discover where the author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped spent his honeymoon, and wonder if this land was the inspiration for those great stories!

Those of you taking part in the 20-mile Fun Run will follow a similar course, turning around at the Highway 29 Aid Station. No matter the race, you’ll be treated with stunning views and challenged with new trails.
