Calico Trail Run

In breve

Distanza Ultramaratona

Informazioni Calico Trail Run

Calico is a ghost town and former mining town in San Bernardino County, California, United States. Located in the Calico Mountains of the Mojave Desert region of Southern California, it was founded in 1881 as a silver mining town, and today has been converted into a county park named Calico Ghost Town. Located off Interstate 15, it lies 3 miles (4.8 km) from Barstow and 3 miles from Yermo. Giant letters spelling CALICO can be seen on the Calico Peaks behind the ghost town from the freeway. Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950s, architecturally restoring all but the five remaining original buildings to look as they did in the 1880s. Calico received California Historical Landmark and in 2005 was proclaimed by then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California’s Silver Rush Ghost Town and is host to the annual ultra marathon, Calico Trail Run. 

The Calico Trail Run 50K is organized by Discovery Trails which is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching the "values" about the amazing Mojave Desert. Many people when traveling through or using the Mojave Desert only see it as a dead place of dried bushes and rocks. Actually though, it is the second largest eco-system in the world behind the Rain Forrest in South America. There is so much life in the Mojave Desert and you just need to be informed how to see it.

The Calico Trail Run 50K is not just a trail run, it’s an adventure. Historic Calico Ghost Town and Mining District is one of the most beautiful and awe-striking trail runs you will ever experience. Ruggedness combined with the shear beauty of the historic Calico Mountains is the theme of this adventure.
