NCTS Race #08 – Swiss Valley Trail Run

Wet trails, big climbs and good times! That sums up Saturday’s Swiss Valley Trail Run and race #08 in the series pretty well! I personally was able to participate in this year’s event and from my perspective and all the other smiling No Coast faces I talked to, everyone had a great time running the challenging 5mi, 10mi and 25k races at Swiss Valley complete with big hills, creek crossings, scary/fun fast & wet technical descents and delicious post race walking tacos!

With only one race left in the series, point standings are down to the wire with most of the 8 divisions having award places determined by the last race! Who will race, who won’t. What distance? How fast? These are the questions that will determine who wins a coveted NCTS award and who doesn’t.
Standings have been updated and can be viewed at
Please note, since a runner must complete at least three (3) races to be eligible for awards, any runners that have only ran one race to this point have been moved to a separate tab in the standings document to allow for more clear and concise award standings.

The recent flooding has forced a change in course for TRF this year but RD Scott Gall & the gang sound like they have it under control and are going to put on another great event as always.
