Every series is unique! Locations, distances, start times, conditions, etc. Make sure to check back regularly for updates to this and every KH series.
Registered runners will not be charged until 60 days before the race when you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration (you currently show up as “wait list” on UltraSignup). When you confirm, your credit card will be charged, if not you will simply be dropped off the wait list without charge.
The fire damaged trails have been cleared, the Covid protocols in place and the Children of the Vineyard Workers Scholarship Fund is going to be in good shape this fall thanks to your registration fees for the Lake Sonoma Series Races.
See you in Wine Country very soon!
Race Director, Lake Sonoma 100K
1. NO LITTERING. Zero, zip, nada. Carry it in, carry it out.
2. BE NICE. Be nice to each other, be nice to the volunteers, be nice to other trail users.
3. HAVE FUN! Violation of rules 1 and 2 will get you disqualified.
If you are observed violating rule 3 (i.e., not having fun) we may withhold your post-race beer.
Pacers are not allowed due to the difficulty of providing adequate aid. C’mon, you can run 100k without a pacer! No trekking poles.
The Lake Sonoma 100k has a zero-tolerance policy regarding the use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). Any athlete who has been determined to have violated anti-doping rules or policies, whether enforced by the IAAF, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), or any other national sports federation is ineligible for entry into the Lake Sonoma 100k.
The Lake Sonoma 100k reserves the right to conduct pre- and post-competition testing for any and all performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) listed on the current WADA Prohibited List. Any athlete who refuses to submit to anti-doping controls, if selected for testing, shall be disqualified and subject to a lifetime ban from the Lake Sonoma 100k.
Note: it is a good idea to get gas the day before the race as there are no gas stations near the course.
From points south: take Highway 101 north to the Dry Creek Road exit in Healdsburg (65 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge). Upon exiting, turn left and follow Dry Creek Road for 10 miles. At the end of Dry Creek Road just below the Warm Springs Dam, the road bends sharply left and becomes Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road. Follow this for another 1.9 miles and turn left to continue on Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road (straight ahead at this point becomes Rockpile Road). Follow for another 0.5 miles and the South Lake Trailhead parking lot is on your right at 100 Marina Road Lot A.
From Cloverdale and points north: take Highway 101 south to the Dutcher Creek Road exit. Turn right upon exiting and then immediately left onto Dutcher Creek Road and follow it for 4.1 miles to Dry Creek Road. Turn right on Dry Creek Road and follow it for 1.1 miles. At the end of Dry Creek Road just below the Warm Springs Dam, the road bends sharply left and becomes Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road. Follow this for another 1.9 miles and turn left to continue on Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road (straight ahead at this point becomes Rockpile Road). Follow for another 0.5 miles and the South Lake Trailhead parking lot is on your right.
From the start to Warm Springs Creek: Return to Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road. Turn right and follow it for 11 miles to the intersection of Old Skaggs Springs Road. Turn right on Old Skaggs Springs Road and follow it for 3 miles to the gate. (Note that this entire 14 miles is on a very scenic country road that twists and turns. If you are prone to car sickness this might possibly be an issue.) Park here and walk a half-mile further down the road to the aid station.
From Warm Springs Creek to Liberty Glen (Madrone Point): Return up Old Skaggs Springs Road for 3 miles to the stop sign. Turn left onto Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road and follow it for 11.5 miles to the stop sign at Rockpile Road. Turn left and follow Rockpile Road for 3.2 miles to the Liberty Glen Campground Road. Turn left and follow this for 0.5 miles.
After the entrance station, turn left and follow the road to the Group Campground E. Park here and walk about 200 yards up the service road to the top of the hill where the course comes in. The Madrone Point aid station is another mile down the service road but you can crew your runner from this spot. Allow 45 minutes to drive here from Warm Springs Creek.
Liberty Glen to No Name Flat: Return to your car, and drive back up the hill to Rockpile Road. Turn right and follow Rockpile Road for a little over a mile back to the well-signed No Name Flat trailhead parking area on your right.
