Happy Friday Phantom Trail Racers!

We are posting to announce our decision in making the 2020 Phantom Trail Races VIRTUAL! After months of communication with both the National Park Service and the CA State Park Service, we think it is best to offer this year's races virtually.

Thank you all for your continued support. We hope the Fall brings announcements of races "the old school way"...IN PERSON~ha! Hiawatha is still on track for October. However, we may be forced to push it back a bit further. You'll be the first to know if so.

If you are already registered, please read the information below so you can complete your Phantom Trail Race virtually and earn your one of a kind handcrafted medal from Elevation Culture. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us at: [email protected]

Your virtual race must be completed between June 1-July 1, 2020 to be considered. If you are on Strava, you may join our private Club: https://www.strava.com/clubs/ptr2020 and once you complete your race distance, your run will be automatically uploaded to the club. Please write in your Strava description that this is your race entry run. If you are NOT on Strava, no worries. Simply take a picture of your watch or tracking device and email us with your run. Once the virtual race deadline of July 1 has been met, we will post all results onto Ultrasignup. You do NOT have to run the actual race course. Please visit our website to see the different elevation gains and mileage if you would like to run a comparable race closer to home: https://www.socalultrarunning.com/phantom-.html

We are happy to mail your medal to the address you registered with on Ultrasignup. We will also be offering in-store pickup at our amazing Sponsor ~ Fleet Feet Sports Westlake. They will be opening next Monday~June 1st and your medals will be available for the entire month to pick up in store. If you are a part of the Fleet Feet Sports Burbank crew, Socalultrarunning Ambassador Sparky Sparks will have your medals. I will mail all FFSB medals to Sparky at the end of June.

If you have a friend that did not register for the races prior to the pandemic, they still have an opportunity to compete in the races virtually. We are offering registration via Ultrasignup. The virtual race registration is $25 for all distances and we have a limited number of medals/spots available. Please send them to: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=73713 to register!

In addition, you will be credited your registration fee minus the $25 virtual race fee. The credit will be different for all participants depending on what your race distance is, but we will keep a record for your reference. This credit will be good towards any of our future events in 2020 or 2021 and beyond. No expiration date.

We will be posting updates and information on our page: https://www.facebook.com/pttrailraces/ So please "Like" our page if you have not done so already. We encourage you to post photos and comments from your runs. It's a way of staying together while apart!

Stay safe out there. Run responsibly. We can't wait to see your posts and pictures. We miss all your faces at the races!
HUGE virtual hug to all of you.
Your Race Director ~ Erica

Happy Friday Trail Runner Nation!
I hope this post finds everyone healthy and happy :)

Most days my mental health is great and I find joy in the simple things~liking running, talking with my girls or walking my dog. I have my health and for that, I am grateful.

Other days however, I wonder how my business will be after we get back to our "new normal" and with these thoughts I struggle.

If you haven't participated in my races, you may not know what the last 2 years at Socalultrarunning looked like..

In November 2018, the Woolsey Fire tore through Cheeseboro National Park 1 day before our 5th Anniversary No Name 5030 Trail Races were to take place. I was devastated to say the least, but responded with a Virtual Race. I mailed the beautiful hand crafted awards to the winners and offered participants their shirts and medals for pickup at Fleet Feet SoCal: Westlake. Those who didn't participate were offered a complimentary entry into any one of my 2019 Races.

Due to the Fire, both Singletrack Stampede and Phantom Trail Races were held later than usual in the Spring of 2019. With so many complimentary entries being redeemed and the delayed start to the racing season, Socalultrarunning struggled. By November 2019 however, I felt so blessed by our community. No Name 5030 Trail Races had more participants than ever! Allowing me to continue doing what I love most. Our Race Series party was a wonderful way to end a long year. Celebrating all of our victories!

In January 2020, tragedy struck again when the ill fated helicopter crash occurred on the trails of the Singletrack Stampede race course. I had to postpone our 5th Anniversary race indefinitely...I humbled myself knowing this was "only a trail race" and held no comparison to the devastation families felt who lost loved ones.

In March I kicked off our Race Series at Fleet Feet SoCal: Westlake announcing our HOKA ONE ONE Sponsorship and Brand Ambassadors ~ Alejandra Ruiz, Kenneth Ringled and Sparky Sparks. I also showcased the Singletrack Stampede awards and medals. Participants picked up their awesome sweatshirts and hats. We raffled off free entries too. It was a fun night, but within 2 weeks the Phantom Trail Races April race date was in jeopardy due to the Virus. Needless to say, I was unable to produce the races and feeling a bit defeated.

Fast forward to yesterday, when I read an article that resonated with me. It was just the message I needed to receive.
It reminded me that I too am Bold.
I am Strong.
I am Self aware and I can accomplish whatever I put my mind to. I will get through this next hurdle as I have in the past and the best is yet to come!!!

So if you struggle in these times or simply need a reminder about your "awesomeness", please take a few minutes to read the article linked below...because it's never too late to be your biggest cheerleader :)

Stay healthy everyone and I hope to see you all soon.
Big Air Hugs ~ Erica

It is bittersweet to post these pictures ~ we were so excited to share them today at the races. Instead, we thought we'd share them here. Gorgeous handcrafted medals by Elevation Culture.

Until we meet again on June 13th or another date if things should change...please stay healthy. Run responsibly. We miss you!

If you take a run today, please share a photo in the comments here. We'd love to see your smiley face:)

We received confirmation today from the CA State and National Parks that we can move the Phantom Trail Races to Saturday, June 13, 2020!!!

We hope this date works for everyone and that we do not have to push it out further into the year, but that is a possibility too.

If you are unable to make the June 13th date, please email us at: [email protected] and we'll remove you from the Race roster. You will be able to choose another race within our Series or simply roll your registration to 2021.

Stay healthy. Get outside and never stop exploring :)

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of the Phantom Trail Races on April 4th.

Personally we struggled with producing the races even if permitted, but the Park Service made that decision for us this afternoon. The National Park Service will no longer allow gatherings/events of more than 10 people.

We are looking at available Saturdays in June to reschedule. Soon as we have a date locked in with the State and National Parks, we will announce it!

In the event that you cannot make the future date, we will roll your registration fees over to the 2021 date OR you can use your credit for any of our future 2020 races.

We appreciate your patience and continued support through the years, but especially these past few months. With the postponement of the Singletrack Stampede Races earlier this month and now the Phantom Trail Races, we feel like we've had a false start to our Series. We know that once we come together however, none of this will matter. We have the best community!

Rest assured that when this happens, we'll still be keeping your health and safety a #1 priority. Last year we switched to pre-packaged Smuckers uncrustable sandwiches rather than homemade PB&J at our Aid Stations, because honestly...after 20 minutes of a PB&J cut into quarters sitting around, well ~ we don't need to tell you how dry and nasty they get. Let's not even talk about sweaty runner hands. Just know we've always had your back and will continue to do so moving forward.

Thank you to our Sponsors, Partners and Volunteers for their willingness to help and support ~ you guys ROCK: HOKA ONE ONE, Fleet Feet SoCal: Encino & Westlake, JOi Cafe, Fluid Sports Nutrition, Vision For Enrichment, Run Vertical Productions, Vendurance Sports, Sparky Sparks, Nicolas Cabeza-Lion, Alejandra Ruiz, Kenneth Ringled, Janna Williams, Cassandra K Boyle, Robb Boyle, Tim Foy, Tres Smith, Doug Loeffler, Brenda Luce, Lori VanLuven, Lariza Sumagaysay Stringfellow, Mary Ann Carraher, Michelle Suma Carrillo, Nicole Honda, Hal Roseman, Dan Dicke and Ari Montagna.

See you sometime in June!

Greetings on this rainy Thursday!

With only 23 sleeps before Race day, the questions have started. So we figured we would address them here and now in light of many events being cancelled due to the virus.

I spoke with the Park Service today and they will NOT be required to cancel the Phantom Trail Races. New criteria will need to be met by us (the Producers) and we are waiting to hear what that will be, but the races will go on!

So ~ if you're looking for an awesome run through the Parks, supported by the Best volunteers in our community AND Best race swag in the Valley...join us on April 4th for Race #2 in the HOKA ONE ONE/ Socalultrarunning Series.

Cheers to Stephen Carter, Maria Leon, Sylvie Dier and Lexy Karasek for committing to the Races!

Phantom Trail Race completed! Thank you Erica Gratton!
thank you for today, I had so much fun. Can't wait to come back for more of your race series!
You can’t control the weather, but you can control how you respond to it....or something like that. Thank you Socalultrarunning. Beautiful trails, Volunteers, extra ice and the utmost concern for all. That mustard over our heads on the single track- wow. gorgeous. But who made Phantom trail a bigger climb today? And called in the hottest day in months? Tough stuff. I was able to share some water with Ward before we ran to the finish. Ward, you tricked me! Pretending to be hot, and then schooling me at the finish. 😂 Great job. Love the trail running community. I can’t wait to see the photos of the OOFOS winners! Great job out there runners!
