About This Activity

The Lost Trail Half Marathon is a scenic single track trail race along the shoreline of Folsom Lake with many scenic views, and it is also offers the Hunter Todd Memorial 5K Trail Run as well. Included with your race entry is a custom tech-tee race shirt, athlete goody bag, post race hot meal, raffle prizes and awards three-deep in each age group.

In January 2013, the racing community tragically lost a highly accomplished young athlete, 20-year-old Hunter Jacob Todd, from Roseville, California. In his honor, TBF Racing will hold the Hunter Todd Memorial 5K Run on Saturday, March 1st, 2014 at GraniteBeach as part of the Lost Trail Half Marathon. Athletes 19 and under can register for the 5K Run/walk for only $15 until race day.

For many years (starting at age 5), Hunter was a participant and a sponsored racer for TBF. He overcame many obstacles to compete in mountain bike triathlons and trail run competitions at TBF events. He hit his stride when he entered the XTERRA Trail Running Series. Hunter raced in three different states with most of the races 10 miles or longer. He was the XTERRA Trail Running Northern California Series Champion, National Championship Silver medalist and the World Championship Bronze medalist 13.1 miles (half marathon). Not an easy task for an athlete born with a congenital heart defect. Hunter’s ability to compete and win in TBF races forever changed his life and provided him with the ability to achieve what was once thought to be impossible. Hunter will always be remembered for his kind spirit and sense of humor. He made a huge impact on all the lives that he touched. He is greatly missed by his family and friends, and we look forward to honoring him with the Hunter Todd Memorial Run at the Lost Trail Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk.

In his memory, Hunter’s parents will donate a $300 “Hunter Todd Memorial Scholarship” to the first-place female and male racers of the 5K competition. Lively up yourself and come race with us.

The Lost Trail Half Marathon starts along the shore of Folsom Lake and after a short section on pavement begins climbing the small hills of the shoreline for an out and back course that veers once to a scenic point along the lake and returns up some short but steep hills, with aid stations spread every 2 miles along the course. There is a climb up Mooney Ridge on the way back to the finish line.

First place Overall Male and Female in The Lost Trail Half Marathon will receive Overall Champion Awards. There will be awards three deep in each ten-year age group for The Lost Trail Half Marathon and the 5K Run/Walk.

Packets available at the race site from 6:30 am to 8 am.
