The Hyner Half is open to runners/speed hikers only. Aid stations and timing for this race are based on a strict 5.5 hour cut-off and "walking" this course would make it impossible to finish in time. This event was not designed for walkers. Speed hikers are allowed and will really enjoy this course.
Again for 2023....we're offering the shorter distance (7K) for those who want to take on the first big climb and the last downhill of the Hyner Half course, but don't feel like doing the entire 14 miles. Make no mistake though, this route gives you over 1000 feet of elevation gain and 1000 feet of loss in just 4.5 miles.
There are no REFUNDS, DEFERMENTS, BIB TRANSFERS, or BANDITS for this event. If you do not agree with this policy, please refrain from signing up. Those who cannot follow our rules obviously don't belong at our events.
The Hyner Half trail race is just that....it's a race. Some runners will be racing to place while others may be racing the clock. Runners will have 5.5 hours to complete the course. The trails that we have selected will keep runners moving through some very diverse terrain on some of the best trails in Sproul State Forest. There will be three aid stations--mile 4, 8, and 11.5. Hyner Run State Park is a beautiful place for a race and also has a swimming pool for runners to use throughout the day.
