Respecting the Trail. The Wrights Field area is a spectacularly beautiful, yet easily accessible in the heart of Alpine. Our goal is to continue to offer this race without impacting the trail. You can help by adhering to the following basic principles while on the trail:
- Avoid traveling on areas of the trail that are particularly fragile, or when the trail is muddy.
- Stay on the main trail and avoid the temptation to keep your feet dry by going off trail. Walking or running outside the main trail tread breaks down the trail edge and widens it, while trampling endangered plant life.
- Hike or run on hard surfaces such as rocks or gravel wherever possible.
- Avoid hiking or running on the faint user-created trails.
